Moncure D. Conway

[March 17, 1832 – November 15, 1907]


At various times Methodist, Unitarian, and a Freethinker, the radical writer descended from patriotic and patrician families of Virginia and Maryland but spent most of the final four decades of his life abroad in England and France, where he wrote biographies of Edmund Randolph, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Thomas Paine and his own autobiography.

He led freethinkers in London's South Place Chapel, now Conway Hall.
