William Munnings Montagu (Monty) Arnold (1851–1919)

from Sydney Morning Herald

Mr. W. M. [William Munnings] Montagu Arnold, of Stradbroke, Paterson River, died last week after a short illness, in his 68th year. He was a very widely-known and familiar figure in the Sydney sporting world, and took a keen interest in Rugby Union football and athletics, both as an active participant with the Wallaroo Football Club and at the Sydney Amateur Athletic Club sports, and on the executive of the N.S.W. Rugby Union.

Mr. Arnold entered the Public Service in the Harbours and Rivers Department, but shortly afterwards joined the staff of the Legislative Assembly, where he attained the position of clerk of select committees, but in 1890 he retired from the Public Service and joined the Stock Exchange. During his residence in Sydney he acted as a director on the boards of several public companies. For the past seven years he has resided in the country.

He was the second son of the late Mr. William Munnings Arnold, who occupied the chair as Speaker of the Legislative Assembly from 1866 to 1875.
