(1829-1912). Hume was a Founder of the Indian National Congress and Vice-President of the Theosophical Society (TS) from 1880 to 1888.  He was the eighth child of Joseph Hume, British statesman and economist, who led the English Radical Political Party for thirty years.  He was educated at Haileybury and London University and employed in the Indian Colonial Service 1849-82. Hume was Magistrate and Collector in N.W. Provinces of India (now Uttar Pradesh); Commissioner of Customs; Secretary to Governor of North-West Provinces.  Hume is said to have received teachings from the ADEPTS which caused him to have a new vision of the possibilities of Indian national life, whereupon he formed the Indian National Congress in 1885 and was called its “Father.” Hume was a strict vegetarian and anti-vivisectionist.
