Memorial Resolutions — Alderman Herbert Marnham

BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1935-05.1

(a) Alderman Herbert Marnham. The death of Mr. Herbert Marnham, a member of this Executive Committee from the founding of the Alliance and for many years its Eastern Treasurer, was referred to in feeling terms, and the ex-President, at the request of the members, drew up a resolution which was adopted in the following terms:—

The members of the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance desire to place on record their deep sense of sorrow and loss in the passing of their honoured friend, Mr. Herbert Marnham. His death removes one of the outstanding laymen of the Baptist world brotherhood. Mr. Marnham was keenly interested in the affairs of the Alliance from its beginning. Almost from its founding he served as its Eastern Treasurer, and his wise counsel, sound business sense, and deep understanding of world problems made him an invaluable colleague. To these qualities were added that warm sympathy, generous hospitality, and Christian beneficence which endeared him to a wide circle of friends throughout the world.
