Adolphus Meyer Brodziak (1835–1922)

The death occurred yesterday of Mr. A. M [Adolphus Meyer] Brodziak, of Macleay-street, Potts Point. At an early age the late Mr. Brodziak voyaged to Fiji. He entered into various enterprises there, and for more than 50 years was intimately connected with Fiji and the adjacent groups of islands, although he had resided in Sydney for the past 45 years. He was well known in commercial circles throughout the Commonwealth and New Zealand, and the firm he established in Suva, with which, however, he was not interested at the time of his death, still bears his name.

Mr Brodziak has left a widow, six daughters, and a son, viz, Mrs L. Louin-Hollander (Sydney), Mrs E. L. Jacobs (London), Mrs. H. S. Rich (London), Mrs C. Badham (Sydney), Misses Hilda and Ivy Brodziak, and Mr. Norman Brodziak, of New Zealand, who served in the British army in the war. Another son, Major Cedric Brodziak, DSO, who was in the landing at Gallipoli and served right through the war, was killed in France on August 31, 1918.
