Frank L. Cooley.

Died. Frank L. Cooley, 89, Presbyterian missionary scholar, author, March 3, 2010, in Clayton, Georgia. As an ordained Methodist minister, Cooley served the YMCA in China (1946-51) and was a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission coworker in Indonesia for thirty-three years (1952-85). Fluent in Mandarin and Indonesian, he was considered to be the foremost Protestant historian of Christianity in Indonesia. His 1962 Ph.D. dissertation at Yale University, "Altar and Throne in Central Moluccan Societies," was translated and published in Indonesia, where it is still used as a primary textbook. His other books in English included Indonesia: Church and Society (1968) and The Growing Seed: The Christian Church in Indonesia (1982). The October 1977 issue of this journal (then known as the Occasional Bulletin of Missionary Research), devoted to the theme "Focus on Indonesia," featured exclusively Cooley's thirty-two-page article, with statistical charts, maps, and artwork.
