William Baulman (1883–1950)

The sudden death last Friday at Urunga, of Mr. W. [William] Baulman while engaged at his work, came as a great shock to his friends and associates. Mr. Baulman, who was District Forester at Taree some years ago, was engaged on special forestry work throughout the North Coast.

Mr. Baulman went to the Taree district some 25 years ago and commenced as a forester at Nabiac. He was later transferred to Kendall and eventually succeeded the late F. G. McPherson as District Forester, at Taree. He was later promoted to the position of Inspector with headquarters in Sydney, but retired a couple of years ago, and was employed on special work mainly throughout the North Coast. He was well-known in Dungog district.

Mr. Baulman was a very capable officer with a wealth of forestry knowledge and a particularly genial and likeable person. His sudden passing will be a distinct loss to the Department and his family.

Mrs. Baulman survives him and resides in Asheld [Ashfield?], Sydney. His sons and daughters are all living in and around Sydney.
