    100301 Clipping on the back of this photo from the Messenger (16/1978) as follows: STAR STUDY He is one of the great galaxy of denominational first-magnitude 'stars'. His name is memorialised by Newbold College's administrative building known as Salisbury Hall. He is Homer Russell Salisbury pastor, professor, administrator, editor, missionary pictured here with his wife, somewhere in London. We suspect it was the Manor Gardens College, North London; and the date would be about 1903. We are indebted to Miss Barbara Leigh of the British Union Conference offices for sending this picture. Prof. Salisbury began the British Church's college programme in 1901 with the opening of Duncombe Hall College soon to be moved to the more convenient Manor Gardens. Prof. Salisbury was College principal for five years, was ordained in 1904, and appointed South England Conference president in 1905. He was born in Battle Creek, Michigan, USA; was secretary to W W Prescott, president of Battle Creek College; taught in Claremont Union College, South Africa; studied Hebrew in London; taught Hebrew and Church History in Battle Creek from 1897 to 1901 when, at the request of the General Conference, he came to London to establish our College programme here in Britain. Other important appointments followed until in 1913 he was appointed president of our Indian Union Mission. After attending the Autumn Council in Loma Linda in 1915, where he made earnest and eloquent appeals on behalf of India's millions, he sailed for India in the S S Persia from New York. World War I was then raging. His ship was torpedoed and sunk in the Mediterranean. Thus ended a life of dedicated and effective service. One of the passengers who was rescued reported seeing Brother Salisbury throw his life-belt to a struggling fellow passenger who had no belt. He was only forty-five.

    100304 On the back of this photo is an article by R D Vine (Press Editor), cut from the Messenger 17/18 1978: "The above is one of the earliest college group photos, it was taken at Manor Gardens, London, in 1904. In this centennial year it is appropriate that we record a visual reminder of the time when the Church's college programme extended to Britain. The college programme began in North London in January, 1902, at Duncombe Hall Missionary College (later named Duncombe Hall Training College) and was under the direction of Professor Homer R. Salisbury. The next year the college was moved to Holloway Hall, and from 1904 to 1907 it operated at Manor Gardens, near Holloway Hall. The picture was provided by Brother and Sister Percy and Margaret Bates of Welwyn Garden City - a husband and wife team who have served Central London for many years - he as elder; his wife chief deaconess and church clerk. Margaret is niece of 'the indomitable Dr. Gertrude Brown' who founded the Crieff Sanitarium, and recently passed away aged ninety-four. Prof. Salisbury and his wife are eighth and ninth from left on the second row. Seventh from the left is Prof. Herbert Camden Lacey, born in England in 1871. He served our Healdsburg College (U.S.A.) and Avondale College (Australia) and then the British College in 1904, teaching Bible, Greek and Hebrew. He was first president of Stanborough College (1907-1913) - predecessor of Newbold. To his right in the above picture is W. T. Bartlett (after whom Newbold's Bartlett Hall is named). Third from left is John Gillatt, later to become one of our most successful evangelists but who tragically died young early in the 1920s. At the far end of this same row, second from right, is Samuel Joyce - another great name in British Adventism. He was publishing leader for many years, and father of President Robert Joyce and Evangelist Sam Joyce (now in retirement in Miranda, California). The lady in the white blouse (seventh from right, third row) is Miss Ella Eastcott, who rendered life-long service as secretary first in the Southern European Division, then the Northern European Division. Aunt of Margaret who provided this picture, she died quite recently. On the back row, fourth from the right, is the beloved and erudite George D Keough whose name was used for Newbold's Keough House - the men's dormitory. Pastor Keough had an encyclopaedic knowledge of God's Word, and was fluent in Hebrew, Greek and Arabic - as well as English. With a beatific smile he used to say: 'When you feel least worthy of having your prayers answered, then is the time to pray most earnestly.'" 1904 Stanborough Press - photographic archive 162k
