Archer, George Chalmers (1864–1936)

The death occurred at his residence, 61 Mayne Street, on Wednesday of Mr. George Chalmers Archer, at the age of 72 years. Born at "Woolmer," Longford, the late Mr. Archer was the second son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Chalmers Archer, and brother of the late Mr. Thomas Cathcart Archer, who died two years ago. His mother was a sister of the late Mr. John Cathcart, who was a manager of the Launceston Bank for Savings. He was well known in banking circles, and was for some time employed at the Old Commercial Bank of Tasmania at Longford. Transferred to Launceston, he was connected with the bank as a ledgerkeeper for many years until it was taken over by the E.S. and A. Bank. He retired 12 years ago. Mr. Archer was a successful rower, and was a member of the Longford club for a considerable time. His wife died some years ago. He leaves one daughter, Millicent, and five sons—Chalmers, Jack, Bernard, Fred, and Hughie. A sister, Mrs. M. M. K. Taggart, lives in Melbourne. The funeral, which will be private, will take place at Carr Villa this afternoon.
