Adam H. Dickey, C.S.D.

It is with profound sympathy for the many friends and pupils of our beloved associate and coworker, Adam H. Dickey, C.S.D., that we record his passing on at his home, 1180 Beacon Street, Brookline, Massachusetts, on Sunday, February 8. Mr. Dickey was well known to the entire field as a member of The Christian Science Board of Directors, having been appointed to this position on the recommendation of our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in November, 1910. Mr. Dickey was later appointed as a Trustee under Mrs. Eddy's Will, in both of which positions he served faithfully up to the time of his passing on.

Mr. Dickey was born in Toronto, and removed to Kansas City in his youth, where he was engaged in business for a number of years with his father and oldest brother. Having become deeply interested in Christian Science, he became in 1899 a practitioner of this religion, and thenceforth devoted his life to its service. From 1906 to 1908 he was First Reader of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Kansas City, Missouri. He was then called by Mrs. Eddy to be one of her secretaries, and continued to serve loyally in this capacity until she passed on in December, 1910. A short time before this she had nominated Mr. Dickey to be a member of the Board of Directors of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. He also served for a time as the Treasurer of this church, and was from the founding of The Christian Science Benevolent Association one of its trustees. Mr. Dickey became a graduate of the Christian Science Board of Education in 1901, and was a teacher of Christian Science, first in Kansas City, and later in Boston. He held the latest meeting of his pupils' Association in Boston, in June, 1924. Mr. Dickey is survived by his wife, Mrs. Lillian S. Dickey, who also has been an earnest, consecrated worker in the Cause of Christian Science, and who will have the loving sympathy of all who were acquainted with her husband.
