Rose to fame as the First President of the London Esperanto Club. He was a pacifist and an internationalist.
His paintings were viewed throughout Paris, Antwerp, and London.
He was president of the International Arbitration and Peace Association and made grand overtures at the Hague to hash out some form of international dispute protocols.
