Gordon Savage (bishop)
Born on 14 April 1915 he was educated at Reading School and St Catherine's College, Oxford and ordained in 1940 after an earlier career as a Librarian. His first post was as Chaplain, Lecturer and Tutor at Tyndale Hall, Bristol after which he was successively General Secretary of the Church Mission Society, Vicar of Marston, Oxford and Archdeacon of Buckingham before elevation to the eponymous Suffragan Bishopric. After four years he was translated to Southwell where he remained until he resigned. 
Gordon Savage stepped down as Bishop of Southwell after the News of the World reported on his extracurricular activities with a topless dancer in a Soho nightclub and following a trip to the Canary Islands with a nightclub hostess. Gordon Savage was a Church of England bishop forced to resign because of a sex scandal. He died on 9 June 1990.
