From the 1911 Universalist General Convention Board of Trustees annual report.
Richard A. Lenz . . .,
of the class of 1909, Canton Theological School, died in Nunda, N.Y., where he had been pastor less than a year, March 20, 1911. A short time with the church in Clarendon comprised the whole of this young man’s ministry. His people in Nunda had become much attached to him and expected much profit and enjoyment from his ministry so auspiciously begun. A mental disturbance, brought on by protracted study and anxiety, resulted in temporary but fatal unhinging of reason.
