Luther Tracey Townsend I have not been able to find much information on Townsend yet. One fact I did find is that he spoke at Wheaton College in the 1880 commencement activities. He is listed as a theology professor. So that puts him the late 1900s as of living and in the Wheaton College orbit at that time. University of Pennsylvania's Online books has him listed, giving his birth and death dates. (1832-1922).
