Friedrich Wilhelm Baedeker, (b. 3 August 1823, d. 9 October 1906) noted evangelist among the Russians in the early days of the Baptist and Evangelical Christian movement in Russia, who devoted much time to preaching in the Russian prisons, and three times crossed Siberia as far as the island of Sakhalin, was of German origin but lived most of his life in England except when on evangelistic tours. He was a close friend of George Müller of Bristol and Lord Radstock (G. A. W. Waldgrave, 1833-1913), and was originally a member of the Plymouth Brethren (Open Brethren) but later worked as an independent. He worked with Radstock in the first St. Petersburg revival in 1874-1876. Both men worked among the nobility at first, using the "drawing-room mission" technique.
