About the Author
Rabindranath Tagore (1861--1941) was one of India's greatest poets. He wrote successfully in all literary genres, but focused primarily on poetry, publishing more than 50 volumes of verse. Born in Calcutta, he was a Bengali writer who traveled to five continents during his lifetime. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913 and knighted in 1915, but gave up his knighthood after a British massacre of peaceful demonstrators in India in 1919. He was a powerful social reformer and his writings were used for the national anthems of both independent India and Bangladesh. His death is memorialized in India to this day.

Albert Schweitzer (1875--1965) was a physician, writer, philosopher, and founder of the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Gabon in 1913 which he ran until his death. In recognition of his many years of humanitarian work, he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952.

In retirement, he founded Harvard Square Library, a digital library about Unitarian Universalism and liberal religion.
