Harper, Arthur Frederic Monnier
 
Arthur Frederic Monnier Harper (1888-1916) was a violin virtuoso born in Belfast, and made his public debut at the age of eleven. Probably in 1904 he settled with his mother and brother in Brussels, and at the age of sixteen played in the orchestra of the Ostende Kurhaus. In the following years he performed as a soloist in France, The Netherlands, England, Northern Ireland and Belgium. Monnier Harper also played with the Residentie Orchestra of The Hague during one season (probably 1913-14).
 
In 1911 he settled in Scheveningen, being appointed Dutch representative of the Weston Hurlin Co., a supplier of aircraft components and founder of flying schools. The Dutch aviation pioneer Adriaan Mulder had been his flying instructor.
