was born 3/7/1844
He led a crusade against eroticism in literature and in other forms of expression. In 1873 he founded the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice with which he was responsible for the destruction of 160 tons of literature and pictures. He also secured stricter U.S. postal laws against bawdy materials. (Look up Comstock Laws some day - happily, all - or nearly all - are finally gone.) Definitely not a nice guy.
