The name of the speaker was actually Harold Penman Smith, son of Harold George Smith (my father's half brother). Harold Penman Smith was born 11 Nov 1911 at Paris, Ontario. The text of his talk (of which I have a copy) was published by the Paris Star on 28 May 1986.
Thank you for your correction, Peter! We have updated the record accordingly.
My father Harold Penman Smith died on 30 Jan 2002 in
Burlington, Ontario. Following the example of John Penman he was a man of deep faith who lived out in the Presbtyterean Church. On one of my last visits to him in Burlington Ontario he said to his family, "My favourite verse is "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me" (Rev. 2:8). Listening to my father's talk on John Penman I was struck by the many parallels including a continuing interest in new technology. The faith of John Penman has carried on though Harold Pennman Smith to me. Thank you for this only record of my father's voice that I have.
The Rev. Canon Dr. Robin Penman Smith
