We need information

We need information about Charles Nathan, a Watch Tower evangelist active in West Africa sometime between 1914 and 1930.

Additional fact: Nathan was an American.

We now think that the account about Charles Nathan is fiction, a composit. Thanks to those who tried to help. The account is found in a recent book by E. C. Osondu.

We know he was in Nigeria showing an abbreviated Photo Drama. No date for that. He came down with fever and returned home. Natives believed he raised the dead. That's the totality of what we know.
