Harwood, Alfred John (1851–1909)

Dr Alfred John Harwood, of Adamstown, died very suddenly at about ten o’clock last evening.

The deceased gentleman had just returned home from his surgery at Merewether, when he complained of feeling ill. He shortly afterwards fell forward, and expired in a few minutes. His partner, Dr A. H. Horsfall, and Dr J. L. Beeston, M.L.C., were communicated with, but death had occurred before their arrival.

Dr Harwood, who was in his fifty-eighth year, had been in practice in Adamstown for eighteen years. He was held in affectionate esteem by the people of that district, and was highly regarded by his professional brethren. He held the diploma of the Royal Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons of Edinburgh. The deceased is survived by his widow for whom much sympathy will be felt. Dr Harwood had not recently complained of any illness. The cause of death was apparently the rupture of an aneurism near the heart.
