Influenza and exhaustion brought on by the pressure of work among four thousand refugees at Mersine, Turkey, cost the life of Dr. Robert E. Willson, of Morning Sun, Iowa, on February 18, 1923. Dr. Willson had been engaged in missionary work in Cilicia for a number of years and passed through the massacres of 1909, when thousands of Armenians in Adana, Marash, and other cities in that region were slain by the Turks.
