Percy Tilson Magan (1867-1947) was born in Ireland and was sent by his father to the United States in 1886 to learn ranching. While on a Nebraska farm, Magan made contact with a young family and later accepted their invitation to attend some tent meetings. For two weeks he attended every meeting and became a Seventh-day Adventist at the age of 18. He became a preacher and evangelist. After working as a licensed minister for a while he attended Battle Creek in 1888, from which he later graduated. In 1889 he accompanied Stephen N. Haskell as his secretary on an around the world trip to seek locations for mission stations. He became associate secretary of the Foreign Mission Board (1890-1891), head of the Department of Bible and History at Battle Creek College (1891-1901), and served with Edward A. Sutherland in the administration of the College its last years in Battle Creek. Magan was a leader in the reforms brought about at the College and in the move to relocate it out of the city.
