|Title||Rev. Mark A. Matthews, Presbyterian activist, probably in Seattle, 1927 |
|Caption||The Reverend Mark A. Matthews, a southern-born fundamentalist supporter of the Social Gospel movement, came to Seattle in 1902 and became the pastor of Seattle's First Presbyterian Church. Outspoken and active in public debate, he was a staunch proponent of 'Social Christianity, ' which combined progressive public social reform with Christian values. While referred to as a 'showman' by some, he backed up his support of social reform by establishing day-care centers, soup kitchens, night classes and other community-oriented services.|
In this 1927 photograph, Reverend Matthews is seated next to an unidentified man at what appears to be a religious gathering.
