Tristram, John William (1870–1938)

from Sydney Morning Herald

Mr. John W. Tristram, the well-known artist, died last Thursday at the age of 67. Mr. Tristram, who was born at Old Brompton Castle, in Kent, arrived in Sydney when he was 10 years old. He entered the Education Department as an architectural draughtsman, being the last man to enter the service by warrant under Governor Loftus, and he remained in the service for 45 years. He retired a few years ago. Among the buildings erected under his supervision are the Sydney Conservatorium and the Armidale Public School. Apart from his skill as a water colourist, Mr. Tristram was a gifted musician, though he never published any of his compositions. He is survived by Mrs. Tristram, two sons, and two daughters.
