Carver, William Henry (1858–1919)

By the death of Mr. William Henry Carver, which took place at Sydney on 9th March, 1919, there has been removed from commercial circles of that city a well-known and highly-respected figure. Mr. Carver was one of the managing partners of the old-established mercantile firm of Dangar, Gedye and Co., of Sydney. The firm controlled a number of important agencies for agricultural and pastoral machinery and appliances, through which Mr. Carver was brought in close touch with many pastoralists. Rather of a retiring disposition, he did not come prominently before the public, but he was none the less an important factor in the business world of Sydney. Cheerful, courteous, and sympathetic, he exercised an influence for good upon those with whom he came in contact.
