William C. Morris is a town in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. It forms part of the Greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area and is located in the Hurlingham Partido.

Name[edit]

The town is named to honor Englishman William Case Morris (16 February 1864 – 15 September 1932), Methodist, educator and founder of the first Methodist Chapel in Argentina. He arrived in Argentina as a ten-year-old youth with his widowed father, and eventually founded a series of children's shelters in Buenos Aires. He returned to England shortly before his death.[1]
