Pentecostal evangelist. She founded the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. In May 1926 she disappeared from the beach at Santa Monica, California. Everybody thought she had drowned, but more than a month later she reappeared in a Mexican border town, claiming that she had been kidnapped. She had in fact spent 10 days with a married man, Kenneth Ormiston, in a cottage in Carmel. Her popularity as a preacher increased.
