Cecil Cooper (bishop)
Alfred Cecil Cooper was the fourth Bishop in Korea from 1931 until 1954. Born in 1882 and educated at Bradfield College and Christ's College, Cambridge, he was ordained in 1907. After a curacy at St Oswald's, West Hartlepool he spent the rest of his active ministry in Korea. Bishop during a turbulent period in the country’s history, the most dramatic event of his episcopate was the forced march to the very top of the country during the civil war. Retiring in 1954, he died a decade later on 17 December 1964.
