J. N. Nichols killed in fall off precipice
Former Syracuse teacher meets death in Asia Minor
A fall from a precipice in the Taurus Mountains of Asia Minor has claimed the life of James Noxon Nichols, former Syracusan and a teacher at Lincoln Junior High School in 1930-31, according to word received here by friends.
Mr. Nichols was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie A. Nichols of Yakima, Wash. Word of his death Sunday came from Ernest W. Riggs of Boston, Mass., secretary of the American Board of Missions. The fall victim had passed the last year under Mr. Riggs instructing in an American school at Eurenkuey, near Istanbul (Constantinople), Turkey.
Mr. Nichols was a graudate of Whitman College of Walla Walls, Wash., with the class of 1930. He came to Syracuse during the summer of 1930 and accepted the position with the Syracuse Department of Education for the ensuing term. He was in Turkey under a three year contract drawn up with the American Board last September.
Mr. Nichols had planned to spend the summer touring Europe and to teach the term starting this fall in Gedik Pasha School in Istanbul, friends here learned in letters he wrote.
The former Lincoln High teacher is survived by his parents, a sister, Miss Julia H. Nichols of Seattle, and a brother, Leslie A. Nichols Jr., of Syracuse. Relatives and friends are unaware of arrangements for the funeral.
