Profile

Full name William Ralph Dean

nickname

Dixie; He was nicknamed Dixie, because of his dark skin.  Dixie was a reference to the Deep South of America where so many black people lived.  Dean, despite his boisterous manner, was an intelligent and deep thinking man and he thought Dixie was an insult - more to the Deep South than to him.  He could not abide it.

Baptised 3 March 1907 at St James' Church, Birkenhead
