Ive, Morton Beach (?–1923)

Morton Ive, n.d.

Morton Ive, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 April 1923

Mr. Morton Beach Ive, managing director of the Beltana Pastoral Company, died at Millswood, a suburb of Adelaide, on 21st March, after an illness extending over several months. He was the second son of the late Mr. C. G. Ive, and had been associated with northern pastoral interests in South Australia practically all his life. His loss was keenly felt, and deeply mourned among the brotherhood of northern pastoralists, who found in him a sterling friend and capable adviser. He entered the employ of the Beltana Company in 1876, and proceeded to Umberatana. After a year or two he returned to Adelaide for a brief while, and engaged in clerical duties. Proceeding north again he was once more identified with the Beltana Company, and under the late Mr. N. E. Phillipson was manager of Mount Lyndhurst, and subsequently of Murnpeowie stations.

Upon the death of Sir Thomas Elder, in 1897, the Beltana Pastoral Company was re-formed into a limited company, with Mr. Phillipson as general manager. That gentleman died the following year, and in 1900 Mr. Ive was appointed to the vacant position. In those days the company had properties aggregating 15,000 sq. miles on pastoral lease, and comprising Cordillo Downs, Kanowna Cattle Run, Murnpeowie, Mount Lyndhurst, and Beltana. In 1913 Mr. Ive transferred his headquarters to Adelaide, but frequently visited the runs, the last occasion having been during the solar eclipse expedition to Cordillo Downs, when he acted as host to the visiting scientists.

Upon the death in April 1922 of Mr. Peter Waite, Mr. Ive was advanced to the position of managing director of the company. He was also a director of the Yudnapina Pastoral Company, and of the Stockowners' Co-operative Shearing Company of South Australia. He was a member of the council of the South Australian Stockowners' Association. Mr. Ive was a bachelor. Messrs. C. W., H. P., A. L., and S. F. Ive are brothers, and Mesdames M. Stanford, C. H. Say, J. Larpent (Sydney) and Misses F. and P. G. Ive sisters.
