    100221 Emeritus Professor Roland E Loasby. Dr Roland E and Mrs Bernice Loasby were missionaries in India during the 20s and 30s. He and his brother, Frank, also a missionary in India, came from the Adventist Church in Kettering. While in India he studied as an external student through London University and obtained a BA (Hons) in Marathi, with his minor subject being Sanskrit. While on furlough in 1930-1931 he took an MA at Columbia University, New York, USA followed by a PhD. He specialised in oriental, and classical languages. This picture was taken soon after his retirement from Washington College on Takoma Park, Washington DC. Mrs Loasby was a nurse by training. As Pastor R E Loasby, he conducted the funeral service for Mrs Williams (wife of Dr A H Williams) in Lucknow, India on 31 January 1933. Unknown Dr Leslie A Williams - private collection 62k

    100227 Dr A H Williams. Went out to Rangoon in August 1906 when he was just 17 years old, to earn enough money to return to England and continue his university education. By the end of his six-year contract with the firm "Oppenheimer's of Rangoon" he had met and married a missionary's daughter. They were both baptised into the Adventist faith by Pastor H H Votaw (whose brother-in-law later became President Warren G Harding, in the USA). During those early six years they were so overwhelmed by the misery and hardships which afflicted the rural population of that country, they decided to undertake missionary work amongst the poorest of the poor villages along the Salween River. At the end of his original contract Williams was not persuaded by Mr Oppenheimer's personal request to him to sign a further contract with their company.
    After a short home leave, when he worked as a temporary male nurse at the recently acquired Stanboroughs in Watford, to gain some elementary medical skills, which he augmented by a course designed for would be missionaries run by The Livingstone College at The Poplar Hospital in East London, they returned to Burma as planned. However while working for Oppenheimer's he had studied Accountancy and Mercantile Law, and this fact, and his dedication to his tasks, however menial, were soon noticed by the denominational bosses in India, some well known pioneers amongst them, who were looking for someone to take over their accounts. They invited him to join the work in Lucknow, which he did in 1915.
    He attended the General Conference as an official delegate in 1920. By that date he had already signed contracts for the purchase of the land and development of Salisbury Park in Poona (where Leslie A Williams was born in 1922), and Vincent Hill School in Mussoorie.
    When Mrs Williams died in Lucknow in January 1933 in the course of her duties as a midwife, working among the poor and needy, A H Williams felt India held little more for him. In 1934, at the age of 45, he returned to England and entered Medical School at University College London and Charing Cross Hospital, qualifying in January 1940. Photo caption: Pres. Sw.H.M.A ?
