|Graham Taylor in Chicago Daily News, 1929
Graham Taylor, founder of Chicago Commons, paid tribute in 1929 to the recently deceased William Carwardine, who like Taylor was a leading minister in the Social Gospel movement. Carwardine came to prominence after he delivered a sermon decrying injustice to workers during the 1894 Pullman Strike, and he became a speaker, writer, and activist for what he saw as "applied Christianity." Both Taylor and Carwardine sought to address a public well beyond their denominations, Taylor as a columnist for the Chicago Daily News, and Carwardine as religion editor for the Chicago Herald and Examiner.
