Social reformer. Presbyterian minister and pioneer radio evangelist. He took up many important causes in the City of Los Angeles in the 1920's and 1930's, most notably the poor handling of the Walter Collins kidnapping case in 1928. He fought to have Christine Collins released from a mental hospital after she was committed there as retaliation for not going along with the LAPD's version of events.
Briegleb lived at 4177 Jasmine Ave, Culver City. After a fall in his home, he passed away the next day
