George Burman Foster (1858–1918) was part of the faculty in the Divinity School (Baptist) at the University of Chicago under the leadership of William Rainey Harper.[1] His views were often thought by his contemporaries to support scientific naturalistic and humanistic views that contradict a Baptist view. A friendship with Clarence Darrow shows that despite Foster's progressive views he still valued and respected the views of a traditional Christian community.[2]
