Fred Chadwick

Apart from contributing to Robin Annual no.3 (1955), I can't find much else about Fred Chadwick. He seems to have been a writer of religious material, mostly small pamphlets, in the 1920s and 1930s and a member of the Junior Members' and Young People's Council of the New Jerusalem Church. The Church was based on the religious writings of Emanuel Swedenborg who published his first theological work in 1749; the Church was established in England in 1787.

I'm 99% certain I'm not making too big a leap here: Marcus Morris, the founder of Robin, was a Reverend from Southport and Fred Chadwick seems to have religious connections with the New-Church House in Manchester. Maybe there's a connection, maybe there isn't although to me it seems likely.

The Senior Section of the Sunday School. London, c.1920.
How Can I Best Serve My Fellows?. London (?), c.1930.
The Touch of Jesus. A message to boys and girls. London, Junior Members' and Young people's Council of the General Conference of the New Church, 1934.
At Eventide-Light. Manchester, North of England New-Church House, 1935.
