Abstract Interview by Lee, the general editor of Kalimat Press, with his father-in-law, an eyewitness to these 1924 events in Tehran.
Notes On July 18, 1924, American Vice Consul Robert Whitney Imbrie was beaten to death in Tehran. Initially the Bahá'ís were accused as the murderers, but follow-up reports showed the attack to have been the result of a mob uprising.

See also New York Times articles, Vice Counsel Robert Imbrie's report to the U.S. Secretary of State, and a follow-up report A consideration of the Bahai religion.
