Note on Husband: Henry Percy WARD

Converted to atheism by Annie Besant. Emigrated to Chicago, USA where he became known as the Atheist Bishop of Chicago.


Articles in the Chicago Tribune describe an incident when he was arrested for conducting a street meeting without a license and a more lurid story where he and his second wife to be were arrested and charged by the morals court for disorderly conduct - which seemed to involve him being whipped by her in his hotel room!


They were acquitted because they got married between the first and second hearings.
