John Nelson Hyde (1864-1912), b. Carrollton, Illinois; d. Carthage, Illinois. The son of a Presbyterian minister, Hyde graduated from Carthage College and McCormick Seminary (1892). He joined the United Presbyterian Mission in Punjab, India, and through painful study became fluent in Urdu, Punjabi, and Hindustani. He was known as "Praying Hyde" due to his frequent and fervent times of prayer. "Gifted in personal evangelism and devoted to itinerant village evangelism, he came to the fore beginning in 1904, when the Sialkot annual convention was organized to revive missionaries and Indian pastors, evangelists, and other Christian workers...His eccentric intensity was a source of contention and embarrassment in the missionary community, but friends credited his prayers as the source of the revival that swept through the Punjabi mission in the first decade of the twentieth century." - Robert T. Coote, Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions.
