Creber, Thomas F. (1876–1918)

By the death of Mr. Thomas F. Creber, of the firm of Dugdale & Creber, solicitors, Melbourne, Shorthorn breeders have lost one of their keenest exponents. In partnership with Mr. Lawrence Dugdale, a Shorthorn herd was established at Tregothnan, near Ballan, Vic., a few years ago, and the firm have attained considerable success in their venture. They imported from England the sire Seahorse, and two of his progeny were sold at the Sydney Show sales in 1917 for 400 and 440 guineas. At the 1918 show sales in Sydney they had only one bull to offer, and he was sold for 590 guineas. Mr. Creber had a remarkable memory for pedigrees, and was a great enthusiast. The Shorthorn world can ill afford to lose such a man, and he will be greatly missed. He died on 3rd May at the comparatively early age of 42 years, and leaves a widow and five young children.
