Titanic Disaster - well-known missionary among the drowned.

Titanic Disaster - well-known missionary among the drowned.

Southern Reporter

The Rev. John Harper, formerly pastor of Paisley Road Baptist Church, Glasgow, who appears to be among the victims of the Titanic disaster, was known in the Newtown and St. Boswells district. A few years ago Mr. Harper conducted the closing meeting of a highly successful mission in the district, and he is well remembered by a wide circle of friends. A sister, Mr. Balloch, for whom much sympathy is felt, is resident in St. Boswells. Mr. Harper's niece and little daughter who were also passengers, are among those saved.
