23 February 1939
Mrs. G. Allan
1 March 1939
Wellington, New Zealand
A cable has been received from Bolivia advising of the death on February 23, 1939, of Mrs. Allan, the wife of Mr. George Allan, founder and director of the Bolivian Indian Mission.
Mrs. Allan, who was well known to many in Wellington and throughout the Dominion, in company with her husband left Wellington for Bolivia in 1909, where she had since been strenuously engaged in missionary work of an undenominational character. She was a lady of outstanding ability and her loss will be severely felt by her husband and by the Mission with which she was associated.
