Herron; George Davis Herron; born 21 January 1862 in Montezuma, Indiana; died 9 October 1925; American clergyman, lecturer, writer, and Christian socialist activist; leading exponent of the Social Gospel movement; From 1892 until 1899, Herron was a quiet supporter of the Socialist Labor Party of America (SLP), the intellectual leader of which was party newspaper editor Daniel DeLeon. Herron exited the SLP in the aftermath of its bitter 1899 faction fight and joined the Social Democratic Party of America headed by Victor L. Berger and Eugene V. Debs, only then making his status as a socialist a matter of public knowledge. He actively campaigned for Debs in the Presidential election of 1900. A gifted public speaker, Herron was called upon to deliver the nominating speech for Debs at the 1904 National Convention of the Socialist Party, held in Chicago. In 1905, his benefactor Mrs. Caroline Amanda Sherfey Rand died, leaving a will which allotted $200,000 to "carry on and further the work to which I have devoted the later years of my life." George Herron and his wife Carrie Rand Herron (daughter of Caroline Rand) were named the trustees of this fund, which was used to establish a library and school for socialist education, the Rand School of Social Science. This institution carried on for the next half century, eventually donating its library to New York University at the time of its dissolution, where it formed the initial core of today's Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Archives.) -
