Hewlett Johnson was born on January 25, 1874 in England. He died on Oct 22, 1966 (age 92). During his lifetime, this Englishman served as the Dean of both Manchester and Canterbury, which are both cathedrals in the Church of England.
1894 was the year that he graduated from Owens College in Manchester with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. Because of his unwavering support for the Soviet Union and its supporters, he became known as “The Red Dean of Canterbury,” a term that accurately describes his political stance. His father had a wire factory in Kersal, where the family came originally from.
