George Bell
Birth: Feb. 4, 1883
Death: Oct. 3, 1958

Churchman, student and later tutor at Christ Church College, who became Bishop of Chichester. Before World War II had close links with the anti-Nazi German Confessional Church and its leading member Dietrich Bonhoeffer (q.v.). One of Bonhoeffer's last messages was for Bell: 'Tell him this is for me the end but also the beginning'. The inscription on the photograph comes from a broadcast by Bell to Germany made in 1945. In the year of his death, 1958, he was awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit by the German Republic. (bio by: David Conway)
