THE LATE ROBERT McCUTCHEON EDGAR

 

The death occurred in Melbourne of Mr Robert McCutcheon Edgar, formerly of High Street, Kew, Victoria.

 

Mr Edgar was born on 6 August 1861 at Bangor, Co., Down, Ireland and came to Australia in November 1886. He started his own business here in 1887 and retired in 1915. In 1917 Mr Edgar went overseas as a voluntary worker for the Australian Red Cross. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace in 1922, and was for over thirty years a Member of the Board of Management of the West Hawthorn Presbyterian Church.

 

The late Mr Edgar married on 14 November 1900, at Boolarra, Gippsland, Victoria, Isabella Mary, daughter of James Adamson, of Fife, Scotland, by his wife, Mary Grieve, of Perthsire, Scotland. They had issue two sons and one daughter.

EDITORIAL

 

It is very much regretted that it was not possible to issue the April, July and October numbers of the News Letters when due. War-time conditions have seriously interfered with the usual publication arrangements and costs have risen steeply. It was intended that the present News Letter, No thirteen, should contain a complete index of all the personal names which have appeared in the twelve earlier issues. However, the extent of this index and the cost of publication have made it necessary to divide the index into two parts. The second and final part will be available in January and will complete the first volume of our Society’s publication.

 

We believe that many of our members will want to keep their collection of News Letters in a permanent form, Consideration has been given to binding these collections in the orthodox way but it was found that such binding would prove unsatisfactory because of the varying width of the margins throughout and because of the comparatively small number of complete volumes which would be available to one firm for binding in Melbourne. So many of our members live outside the metropolis and in other States, and abroad that it is best to recommend to all who are concerned to permanently

INDEX NOMINUM

To permit of easy reference, the Index has been divided into two parts, the first records Edgar references in the text and the second records the references to other persons in the text.

 

So far as the Index relates to News Letters No.2 it should be understood that the reference refer to the pages of the original issue of that News Letter and not to the pages in the re-print.
