A champion of free thought
Speaking of free thinkers, Royal Bob has taken quite a few hits in recent years, especially among the religious conservative fold who don't fancy his acerbic views on the Bible and religion in general. My grandfather interlaced clippings of Robert Ingersoll and Twain in the family album, which is how I first came across his writings. Most of the books available on Ingersoll are in his own words, which is the way it should be, but there have been a few biographies written over the years, including this one by C.H. Cramer, published in 1952.
