Fairfax, Edward Ross (1843–1915)

Information was received yesterday by cable message from London of the death of Mr Edward Ross Fairfax, son of the late Hon. John Fairfax M.L.C., at the age of 72 years. He was for many years a partner in the firm of John Fairfax and Sons, proprietors of the Sydney Morning Herald and the Sydney Mail. Since his retirement from business he had lived in England but kept up his interest in various institutions in Sydney and will be remembered by many old friends inside and outside the Herald office, by whom he was held in high esteem.
