J.T. Sunderland, "Principal Heramba Chandra Maitra in America" (1911)

An article by J.T. Sunderland in the February 1911 issue of Modern Review, which traces Brahmo Samajist Heramba Chandra Maitra's visit to the United States. Sunderland discusses the negative perception of India from Americans, and discusses how the work of Maitra, and other Indian religious figures from Protab Chandra Mazoomdar onward, have helped counter those views. Much of Maitra's visit involved delivering lectures and addresses at Unitarian churches and universities in New England, New York, and Chicago. The subjects of his lectures included the ideals of Brahmo Samaj, the "Religion of the Future: And India's Contribution to It," and the work of Theodore Parker.
