Rev. Mihran Domboorajian, retired missionary, died this morning at his home at 616 Church St.
He was born Feb. 15, 1860, in Kharput, Armenia, and was educated at Roberts College in Constantinople and at the Euphrates Theological seminary in Kharput, where for several years he was a teacher of mathematics.
He was ordained as a Presbyterian minister in 1887 and was married that same year to Shushan Vartanian, who accompanied him to Teheran, Persia, where he entered into his lifework as a Christian missionary.
Mr. Domboorajian sent his family to the United States in 1913, and joined them six years later, remaining in America until 1928, when he returned to his work in Persia. He retired from active service in 1933 and rejoined his family in Ann Arbor, where he had since resided.
