Moody, Dwight Lyman, was born in 1837 at Northfield, Massachusetts. In 1856 he began his missionary work while in business at Chicago. In 1873 he came to England, accompanied by a singer named Ira David Sankey, whom he had met three years before, and attracted large crowds to his services. In 1883 they again came to England. Moody has published several popular devotional works.
