A.R. Main
1876-1945

      Alexander Russell Main was born in Dumbartonshire, Scotland, in 1876. His parents were attached to the Presbyterian Church. He was educated in the public school, and then attended special classes at the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College. After these studies he became a pupil teacher in the public school at Cumbernauld, Scotland. Coming to Victoria with his father, he settled in Drummond, one of our country towns, and became a member of the Church of Christ in 1893.

      In February, 1907, the College of the Bible was established, when Bro. H.G. Harward, who had previously been distinguished in evangelistic and church service, was called to be a member of its teaching staff, and shortly afterwards became Principal.

      On completion of the University course Bro. Main devoted his abilities to the College of the Bible, and on Lord's days still took church work, as well as a large amount of journalistic duty for the "Australian Christian."
