Biographical data
Name: Rutherford, Arthur  
Born: 4 Jan. 1866
Died: 1958
 
Notes:
Brother of William Watson Rutherford. Forster has 'Arthur K. Rutherford' once on p.287, and in the index of his biography of Burn, but none of the many other references in that book have the middle initial K. Steve Mann's analysis of birth, death and census records show no sign of a middle initial.
