Described in Paul Lunney's book "HIBERNIAN 1875-1975" (Tempus Publishing Ltd,2001) as "... arguably Hibs' greatest ever goalkeeper".

Also played for Arsenal, Fall River Marksmen, Boston Wonder Workers, New Bedford Whalers in the American Soccer League and latterly with Plymouth Argyle. (edited by moderator)

Willie Harper was my great uncle, two of my grandsons and a nephew are HUGE hibs fans who are puzzled and disbelieving when I explain this to them. My maternal grandmother (Flora Black nee Harper) was his sister and I actually met him a few times. Would it be possible to arrange a stadium tour for the young descendants.
