Missioner Lough Dies at Age 81

LONDON, Ont., - Maj. Samuel Parkinson Lough, 81, who did mission work for the Indians of the Hudson Bay area and among the destitute in Chicago's skid row, died here Saturday. Born in Ireland, he was educated at Colgate University, New York and Union Theological Seminary in Rochester, N. Y.

After his ordination, he worked in the Hudson Bay area for the Baptist Mission Society, and was entrusted by the Canadian Government with looking after all serums and medicines in the region and performed medical and dental services.
