Dr. Harper's dissertation at Hopkins, "The Froude Family in the Oxford Movement," was a study of the relationship between John Henry Newman (1801-1890) and William Froude (1810-1879). The relationship between the two men, one a convert to Catholicism, and the other a scientist and naval engineer, was a subject of particular interest to Dr. Harper. As a research student at King's College, Cambridge (1928-1929), Harper studied the Oxford Movement under the direction of the Reverend James M. Creed. In 1933, Dr. Harper's expanded work on the correspondence of the two men, Cardinal Newman and William Froude, F.R.S., was published.
Gordon Huntington Harper died on April 8, 1934 at the age of twenty-nine.
