Westwood, Rev. Horace, D.D. (Wakefield, Yorkshire, England, August 17, 1884--December 24, 1956, Clearwater, Florida). Emigrating to the United States, he served in the Methodist ministry for several years, and after 1910 served as minister in Unitarian churches in Youngstown, Ohio; Winnipeg, Canada; Toledo, Ohio; and extensively as a mission preacher. His hymn in one stanza, "Spirit of Truth, of Life, of Power" (1922) was included in Hymns of the Spirit (1937), and he privately printed a small collection, Some Hymns and Verses (n.d.), a few of which appeared in periodicals, but have not had wider use.
