Solomon, Henry Hyam (Harry) (1870–1940)

A notable Monaro figure died early on Friday last at Cooma District Hospital, to which he had been admitted only the previous night, in the person of Mr Harry Hyam Solomon, Clerk to Monaro Shire Council since its inception in 1906.

Mr. Solomon, who was just over 70 years of age, was in harness to the last. Although he was obviously not well, he attended the monthly meeting of Monaro Shire Council on Thursday. Councillors suggested that he would be better in bed, but though his place was taken at the table by Miss Botting, Assistant Shire Clerk, he remained within call till the meeting was concluded.

He leaves a widow and daughter.
