AdminHistoryHugh Richard Lawrie Sheppard, known as Dick Sheppard, was the son of Canon Edgar Sheppard (1845-1921). In his early career he was secretary to Cosmo Gordon Lang, chaplain of Oxford House, Bethnal Green, curate of St. George's, Hanover Square, and chaplain of the Cavendish Club. As vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields from 1914 to 1926 H.R.L. Sheppard developed an interest in religious broadcasting which brought him to public prominence and introduced the policy of keeping the church open both day and night. With William Temple he inaugurated the Life and Liberty Movement in 1917, and he was one of the founders of the Peace Pledge Union in 1934. He was Dean of Canterbury 1929-31, and a canon of St. Paul's Cathedral 1934-7. His publications include The Impatience of a Parson (1927).
AcquisitionGiven by Lady Richardson, 1995.
