MacVean, Peter (1828–1896)

Dr. [Peter] MacVean died suddenly at Korong Vale to-day while on his periodical professional visit to that township. The particulars to hand are meagre, but it appears he was seized with a fit while walking down the street, and was carried into one of the private houses and died within a few minutes. Dr. Rinder, who had been telegraphed for, was absent in the country, and three hours elapsed before his arrival. Dr. MacVean was an old identity, having practised his profession in the district for 30 years after relinquishing squatting pursuits and the ownership of the Mount Greenock and Torpichen stations.
