Wilson, John Thomas (1876–1929)

Mr. John Thomas Wilson, B.A., Inspector of Schools, collapsed and died in his motor car yesterday morning, after an official visit to the Burnside Homes. His loss will be lamented by a wide circle of friends, including teachers, to whom he was endeared by his helpful and sympathetic disposition. Mr. Wilson began as a pupil teacher at Manly in 1895, and was trained in the 1900 session. Among the schools at which he taught are those at Bowral, West Wallsend, Granville, Stanmore, and Taree. Promoted to inspectorial rank in 1921, he had charge in turn of the Braidwood, Tamworth, and Parramatta districts. A one-time Fraser Scholar in History, Mr. Wilson always emphasised the need of fostering a living interest in the subject, with full correlation to geography.
