Colonel John Harlan Buzby, USA (ret.)
is the author of John Stewart Rock: Teacher, Healer, Counselor. The MOAA said of the book, “This
book tells the life story of an outstanding Salem County native son, John Stewart Rock (1826-1866). He was a teacher, dentist,
physician, lawyer, abolitionist, orator and writer. He was a crusader for equal rights and an early champion of Black empowerment.
He was the first person of color accredited to practice before the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1865. Rock was a leading
abolitionist, well known in his time but little known in ours.”
