Macrossan, Brian (1879–1919)

The many friends of Mr Brian Macrossan dental surgeon, will learn with deep regret of his death, which occurred yesterday at his mother's residence after a short illness. The deceased, who was 40 years of age, was the second son of the late Hon. John Murtagh Macrossan, formerly prominent in the public life of Queensland. He was educated at Nudgee College, and was for some years demonstrator and lecturer in chemistry and metallurgy at the Charters Towers School of Mines. Subsequently he engaged in mining engineering at Mount Morgan and Mount Elliott. Owing to an unfortunate accident he was prevented from pursuing his profession as a mining engineer, and took up the profession of dentistry, which he practised in Brisbane for the past two years, having acquired the practice of the late Mr D. R. Eden. He took a keen interest in all matters relating to his profession and at the time of his death was honorary secretary to the Brisbane Dental Hospital. He was respected and beloved by all who knew him for his high ideals and unselfish character. The funeral will leave the residence of his mother, Creslough, John street, Albion at 10.30 am to-morrow for the Nudgee cemetery
