Robin, Percy Ansell (1861–1937)

I see that Dr. Percy Ansell Robin passed away at Camberwell, Victoria, last week, at the age of 76.

Mr. Stephen Parsons told me that Dr. Robin was one of the smartest boys that came out of Prince Alfred College. He and Hans Hamilton Mack divided the first scholarship ever granted by the University of Adelaide: they each graduated in arts in 1880.

Mr. T. Hedley Robin, of Kensington Gardens, is a brother.
