Albert Schweitzer lived from 1875-1965. He started off as a theologian and became known for a book he wrote entitled "The Quest for the Historical Jesus" in 1906. He also played the organ and was considered famous on his organ skills alone. After his writings, he studied medicine and surgery and became a doctor in Lambarene, Africa. Albert Schweitzer developed "Reverence For Life", which was his view on the world. He thought the Western world was in decline due to its lack of respect for human life. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952. However, he believed that Whites were the superior race and Blacks were inferior. Schweitzer based that on a misguided and limited view of people he helped in Africa.
