New Members of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship

Herbert W. Beck, C.S.B., was born in San Francisco, California, and received his education in the public schools of Oakland and the University of California. His early business training was in the Pacific Coast Borax Company, where he rose to the position of Director, from which he resigned in 1902 to devote his full time to the practice of Christian Science.

Through the healing of his father, Mr. Beck became interested in Christian Science in 1887. He was admitted to Mother Church membership in 1899 and took Primary class instruction in 1903. He has served as Reader, president, and director in branch Churches of Christ, Scientist, and was a Chaplain in the United States Army during the first World War. Later he was Assistant to the Manager of Committees on Publication of The Mother Church. After receiving instruction in the Normal class of the Board of Education in 1925, he returned to the San Francisco Bay area to continue his practice and to take up the teaching of Christian Science. In 1938 he was appointed Committee on Publication for Northern California, which position he retained until he was called to Boston in 1940 to become Manager of Committees on Publication.

Mr. Beck will continue to hold his classes and conduct the meetings of his pupils' association in San Francisco.
