Though it does not match your question perfectly, I am working my way through a memoir now that has some interesting conceptions of the "Southern way of life." It was written by R.S. Tharin, a one time law partner of William L. Yancey, and a self-described "Alabama refugee." According to Tharin, he was run out of Montgomery in 1861 for his support of the Alabama Constitution which outlined a strict loyalty to the union, amongst other things. He found refuge in Cincinnati, Ohio surrounded by Abolitionists one of whom told him he ought to be beaten for his lack of sympathy for that cause.

I am looking for any usage of this phrase that does NOT imply white supremacy (if it exists). I don't mean references to "southern" attributes that derive from white supremacy. In particular, does anyone know of pre-1850 usage of "southern way of life" that was not a prop for slavery or white supremacy? I became aware of it in the 1960s as code for segregation/white supremacy, but I need to know of any prior and DIFFERENT uses. Thanks.
There's solid chapter on Campbell from a denominational-history angle in Richard C. Traylor, Born of Water and Spirit: The Baptist Impulse in Kentucky, 1776–1860 (Knoxville: The University of Tennessee Press, 2015). It's well worth reading for Campbell and the Campbellites in the context of Baptists in South.
From the Disciples of Christ historical society site, here is a bibliography of related publications, but none specifically on
There is the three-volume "literary biography" by Wrather and Cummins (2009). It is a confessional biography and does not have notes. Despite its limitations, it is definitely worth a look.
You're correct that there's no current biography on Campbell. There is a recent study of Campbell's religion & philosophy by Caleb Clanton, who's a philosopher by training, but there's no recent historical work on him that I'm aware of.
I am working on a paper for a graduate level course in Ante-Bellum America. David O. Hatch makes the statement in his book The Democratization of American Christianity that no historian has written a biography on Alexander Campbell. Is this an accurate statement at the time he wrote his book? Does anyone know of any biographies of Alexander Campbell?

I am interested in presenting at the 2018 SHA annual meeting and am seeking others to propose a panel. My timeframe is the early national period, ca 1788-1800. My focus is on a northern merchant from Philadelphia who moves to Savannah, GA, and tried to make a go of it in a hyper-competitive, but cash-poor marketplace. Key terms to look for parallel monographs might be:
