About the Author

W. T. Stead (1849-1912) was a Spiritualist also remembered as one of the most well-known passengers to drown on the Titanic. He was also a pioneering of Victorian-age journalism, a crusader, an outspoken supporter of many movements popular and unpopular, an advocate of world peace and women’s rights, a defender of civil liberties, and a fighter for the deprived and oppressed. Correspondence reveals that he was always guided by a moral mission and influenced by his faith, and saw his position as a journalist as “a glorious opportunity of ‘attacking the devil’.”
