Mackellar, Malcolm (1889–1943)

The news of the sudden death of Mr. Malcolm Mackellar, formerly of Kurrumbede, was received in Gunnedah yesterday with expressions of regret by a large circle of friends (says Gunnedah 'Independent'). He is survived by his widow. Although it was known that Mr. Mackellar had been in poor health for some time, the news of his death came as a shock. He had recently made business visits to Gunnedah, leaving from the last on Sunday week. He was the son of the late Dr. Sir Charles Mackellar, a Sydney medico, who was an M.L.C. and afterwards elected to the Federal Senate. Mr. Malcolm Mackellar served in the last war as an officer in the British Life Guards, and while in the fighting line was gassed and suffered serious after-effects during his after life.
