Evangelists

If you were reading the January 16 1937 edition of the Toronto Daily Star and were interested in wanting to hear an evangelist preach, the paper offered at least two options:

The Assemblies of God website has a page on Otto Klink (1888-1955). As a young man attending university in Berlin, he was sentenced to two months in prison for making a speech that was interpreted as inciting rebellion against the German Crown Prince. Emigrating to New York in 1909, he became part of an anarchistic society called the Red Mask, which planned to assassinate President William Howard Taft. He married a Pentecostal woman in 1917, and became a minister in 1923.

Joseph A. Synan served as a bishop of the Pentecostal Holiness Church for 24 years. His son, H. Vinson Synan, became a noteworthy enough preacher to have his own Wikipedia page.
