Note: Dr. Ernest E. Tuck was a Methodist missionary to the Philippine Islands. He was interned in Manila by the Japanese during World War II (1942-1945).  He came to the United States from Australia as a teenager in 1905, settling in Colorado. He graduated from the University of Denver and became a Methodist minister in Denver. He later went to Boston University for graduate work in theology. At the time he finished his degree, World War I had ended and the Methodist church was launching a new world mission program. Tuck and his wife volunteered, and along with their four-year-old daughter began their mission work in India, spending five years. He then spent seven years as an Associate Secretary at the Board of Missions in New York. After another three years as a minister, in 1936 they went to the Philippines where he was appointed the superintendent of the Methodist Mission in Manila. Following the war and a brief time in the United States he returned to the Philippines to help in the rebuilding for seven years. He returned to spend five years in New York as the director of the Advance Department for the Board of Missions after which he retired in 1957. His papers are in the University of Oregon Libraries Special Collections in Eugene.  The details of his brief connection with the Central Pennsylvania Conference are unknown.
