The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910
The suddenness of Hedley Jordan's death on Monday, 11th April, came as a shock to Victoria College. On Saturday he represented the College at football, and on Sunday appeared in his usual health. On the Monday morning he attended a parade of the Officers' Training Corps, and white engaged in signalling fainted. He was eventually taken to a private hospital, but all efforts were in vain. He died in the early part of the evening.
In the death of Mr. Houghton, the College has lost a valued friend. His interest in and sympathy with College affairs were appreciated by all who knew him.
