Simson, Robert (?–1958)

Mr. Robert Simson, of Moreduval, Quirindi, N.S.W., who was well known in Hereford and Poll Hereford stud breeding circles throughout the eastern States, died at his home on 26th October.

Mr. Simson was a successful exhibitor and judge of Poll Herefords at leading shows in New South Wales and Queensland, his Moreduval stud being noted for the blood of Pawnee Rollo (imp. U.S.A.). He was also a keen polo enthusiast and was president of the Quirindi Polo Carnival Club. He took an active interest in local public activities, being an ex-councillor of the Tamworth Shire, and had long been a member of the Graziers' Association of New South Wales.

The late Mr. Simson is survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons—John and David.
