Washington Gladden

1836-1918. Liberal theologian and exponent of the Social Gospel. He received his college degree from Williams College and served churches in New York and Massachusetts from 1860 to 1882, except for some years as religious editor of the Independent. His main pastorate was at First Congregational, Columbus, Ohio, from 1882 to 1914. Here he applied Christ's teaching to social problems, upheld the rights of unions, favored profit sharing and industrial arbitration, and tried to have his denomination turn down a large gift from Standard Oil as “tainted money.” He wrote the hymn “O Master, let me walk with Thee.”
