Lawyer and poet Clarence A. Buskirk

Who was Clarence Buskirk?

The former Indiana Attorney General was an able lawyer, eloquent writer, and gifted speaker. He left the field of law to devote his life to Christian Science after his daughter’s healing in 1895, serving as Committee on Publication for Indiana as well as a Christian Science practitioner and lecturer. He would contribute nearly 100 articles and poems to the Christian Science periodicals over the years, travel the world as a lecturer, and earn Mary Baker Eddy’s praise for his “able discourse” and “flash of flight and insight” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, 296).
