Former York County Pastor Nearly Blown Away

You know how when it is really windy we sometimes exaggerate and say we were almost blown over. According to the York Dispatch of April 26, 1928, Rev. Dr. Milton K. Foster didn’t have to exaggerate:


The Rev. Dr. Milton K. Foster, retired Methodist Episcopal minister of Williamsport, who is well known in this city, is seriously ill in a Williamsport hospital, suffering with a broken hip and other injuries. The Rev. Dr. Foster, who is 91 years old and has been retired for the past 17 years, was blown over by a heavy wind last Thursday while walking on a street in Williamsport. He struck a curb in his fall and was knocked unconscious. It was reported at first that he was dead.
Dr. Foster is a native of Lewisberry, this county. He has several relatives living there now.”
I hope Dr. Foster recovered to walk out another day, one when the wind was calm.
