Biographical Note

S. Parkes Cadman (1864-1936) was born in England and immigrated to the U.S. in 1890. In 1900, Cadman was selected as minister of the Central Congregational Society and Church in Brooklyn, N.Y. During his pastorate, Cadman became the leading Congregational clergyman in the United States, as well as the first U.S. radio preacher. The Central Congregational Church was renamed in memory of Dr. Cadman in 1939.
