Hogarth, William (?–1912)

Mr. William Hogarth, who died in Adelaide at the end of January, was for many years associated with his brothers and the Hon. John Warren in the Strangways Springs Station. He afterwards became manager of the Momba Pastoral Company's station near Wilcannia, a position he occupied for twelve years. Later he became general outside manager for Goldsbrough, Mort and Co. Limited, of Melbourne, but had to relinquish the position in consequence of failing health. Mr. Peter Waite, writing with reference to the death of his old friend, Mr. William Hogarth, says: —"I had the most pleasant relations with him during the years he was manager of Momba. He was one of the ablest and best men I have been associated with, and, moreover, had the courage to carry out his opinions, and did not hesitate to abolish an established system where it clashed with his convictions, even if he stood alone. There were few men who had a better knowledge of the management of pastoral properties, and I know that his employers regretted very much that his illness deprived them of his valuable services."
