Walsh, William Patrick (1874–1945)

Collapsing yesterday at the hotel at St Kilda where he lived, Mr William Patrick Walsh, 71, former superintendent of the CIB, died within a few minutes. Before retiring in March, 1934, Mr Walsh had given 38 years' service in the police force, and on retirement had served six years as CIB chief. Previously he had been in charge of licensing in the city. He directed the prolonged search for Richard Buckley, who, with Angus Murray, had been charged with the murder of Mr Berriman, a Glenferrie bank manager. A keen bowler, Mr Walsh was a member of the Toorak club, and was an interstate player. The funeral will be held at Boroondara Cemetery at 11am today, following Requiem Mass at the Sacred Heart Church, St Kilda, at 9am.
