Harold Dudley Hay (1881–1955)

Mr. Harold D. Hay, who died at his home, Langi Oonah, Cobram, Vic. [NSW], on 27th December, was a son of the late Alfred Hay, a member of one of the old and respected pioneering families of Riverina. His grandfather, the late William Hay, purchased Boomanoomana, N.S.W., on the Murray near Cobram, over 100 years ago, having arrived in Victoria in 1835.

Mr. Harold Hay's life was devoted to pastoral pursuits and their associations. Amongst his many interests he was managing director of John A. Sloane Pty. Ltd., owners of the Neyliona Pastoral Co., breeders of the well known Corriedale stud of that name, and was a director of Younghusband Ltd. He managed Boomanoomana for many years, and until his death owned and lived on a portion of that property.

He was a good all-round athlete, and was a member of the Melbourne football team that won the premiership in 1900.

Mr. Hay, who was aged 74 years, leaves a widow and three daughters.
