Lewis Hyam Hyman (1847–1911)

The death is announced by cable, at the age of 68 years, of Mr Louis H. Hyman, who for very many years was a resident of Tamworth, New South Wales, during which time he occupied many prominent public positions, among them being that of president of Tamworth Hospital. For some time past he has been living in England, and the cause of his death, which took place on Friday last, after a few week's illness, was acute diabetes. The late Mr. Hyman, whose wife predeceased him some fourteen years ago, leaves a family of three sons and five daughters, among them being Mr. A. W. Hyman, solicitor, and Dr. Oscar H. Hyman, of Sydney, and Mrs. A. A. Cohen and Mr. E. M. Hyman, of Tamworth.
