H. M. S. Richards - Early Life

Early Life

Richards began his ministry as a tent preacher when he was 17. His brother worked as a driver for then Senator Warren G. Harding. Harding invited him to see a demonstration of the newly invented radio. Richards came to view radio as a way to bring the Gospel to nations. He came to California during the Depression and has been on the air continuously since 1930, when he gave a 15 minute guest sermon on KNX in Los Angeles. He noted that every six days 1 000 000 more people come into the world. He viewed the radio as a way of keeping up with these new additions to the human race.

Richards married Mabel Annabel Eastman in 1920, and they had 1 daughter and 3 sons. He died in 1985 at the age of 90. In 1940, Richards ran on a very limited budget. By contrast, in 1980, he had a $6 million budget and a staff of researchers to help him avoid early foibles.

    Yet now farewell, and farewell life with thee!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I don’t believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates.
