I was also told, "He has a very interesting biography, with components of the story scattered across different publications, but never collected up properly. He had a particularly adventuresome and lurid pre-conversion past --he was a talented actor and ran a theatre company in California, the first proper theatre company in San Francisco, and there are stories about him in the historical thespian literature of California. e.g. his wife complained to other actors that he'd been beating her, and  fell in love with another actor which made Hambleton even worse. Shortly afterwards his wife took her own life with cyanide. "
