Schoolmarm Wood Publications was initially just a name author Stephen D. Dighton created to put on the cover of a monograph he had written to help Bahá’ís answer questions about the Faith they were asked by Christians. A short time later he compiled a book of quotations from the Writings of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, Verses of God, organized around the themes suggested by the Badí calendar which he made available electronically. Finally, after a couple of years of gathering electronic editions of the Bahá’í Writings for his own use, he developed a means for searching those texts. His wife said if he was going to spend that much time on this project, he ought to make it available to other Mac users and ARCHIVE was born. Too large for electronic distribution at that time, he put it on a CD and offered it for sale to defray the costs involved and had to formally found Schoolmarm Wood Publications as a business in March 2000 to meet the demand for it. ARCHIVE is now a free download and Schoolmarm Wood Publications has expanded its offerings to include Bahá'í inspired Art and Video DVD's  and a small select group of written works as free downloads in ePub and PDF formats.
