George D. Herron

Herron, c. 1900 George D. Herron (January 21, 1862 – November 9, 1925) was an American clergyman, lecturer, writer and Christian socialist activist.

Herron is best remembered as a leading exponent of the so-called Social Gospel movement and for his highly publicized divorce and remarriage to the daughter of a wealthy benefactor which scandalized polite society of the day. A self-imposed exile followed.

During World War I, Herron broke with the anti-militarist Socialist Party of America, became a self-assigned diplomat and filed regular intelligence reports on German public opinion to the American and British governments in support of the Allied war effort. Provided by Wikipedia
