John Darroch
John Darroch (Chinese alias 竇樂安) (O.B.E.) was a British missionary from Scotland who served in Shanxi and Jiangsu provinces, and in Shanghai, China. He worked for a university in Shanxi and apart from Christian literature, issued or edited a number of Chinese-language study materials, related to subjects as geography, as well as several Chinese language study books in English. He also managed a street construction in Shanghai, for a while known as Darroch Road (now Doulun Road).
