Mr. Alfred George Pryde Paterson, who died in Perth (W.A.) on 1st September at the age of 75 years, was one of the leading experts in Australia on dingo destruction and wrote a number of articles for the Pastoral Review on the subject from time to time.

The eldest son of the late Mr. George Pryde Paterson, whose father, Nichol Robertson Paterson, arrived in Australia from the Orkneys in the year 1840, Mr. A. G. Paterson pioneered the wool industry in the Wiluna district and had interests in Cunyu Station in that district and in Yarraloola Station, Onslow. For many years he was Chairman of the Road Board and President of the R.S.L. in Wiluna, and had long service with the Vermin Advisory Board and, more recently, with the Agriculture Protection Board, where his wide knowledge and experience of the pastoral areas proved invaluable.

In World War I Mr. Paterson took part in the Gallipoli campaign and is survived by his widow, one son, and four daughters.
