Kent, Sydney C. (1870–1947)

Mr. Sydney C. Kent, who died in Adelaide recently, was born in Sydney 77 years ago. He was, with the late Sir Charles Goode and Mr. A. W. Hendry, one of the pioneers of the Royal Institution for the Blind in North Adelaide. He was also for 15 years manager of the same organisation in Maylands, Western Australia. His late wife, Mrs. Edith Menpes Kent (niece of the late Mr. Mortimer Menpes, well known English artist) was matron of the Perth institution during her husband's management. Mr. Kent began business in Prospect and built a grocery store which he owned for about 10 years. Before his retirement he was for 30 years a wholesale confectionery distributor. He leaves two sons and two daughters—Miss M. E. Kent, of Prospect, Mr. C. S. Kent (Prospect), Mr. L. J. Kent (Mount Serle station, via Copley), and Mrs. O. M. Finn (Glenelg), and Rex Kent (deceased).
