William Hart Brown (1855–1926)

The death occurred on Friday of Mr. William Hart Brown, the widely known dog and poultry expert. He was knocked down by a vehicle in Hutt street some time ago, and did not recover from the effects, although his death was not so soon expected. Mr. Brown was connected with the Poultry and Kennel Club, and was one of Australia's best-known breeders of Malay game fowls. He knew, also, the points of a good dog, and his services as judge of poultry and dogs were called into requisition in many parts of the Commonwealth. He at one time was manager for the late Mr. John Rounsevell. He has left a widow, Mrs. Leontine Celia Brown. Speaking at a combined social of the Specialist Poultry Clubs in Adelaide on Saturday evening, Mr. C. H. A. Lineau said that the late Mr. Brown had been included among some of the oldest poultry fanciers in the State, and a member of the Poultry and Kennel Club for many years. He had commanded the respect of every member who had known him. Their sympathy went out towards his widow. Members of the gathering stood and paid a silent tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased.
