Edward Sydney Littlejohn (1867–1940)

Dr. Edward Sydney Littlejohn, whose death occurred at his residence in Croydon last week, was the third son of the late Mr. Thomas Littlejohn, of Sydney, who was senior partner of the firm of Scott, Henderson, and Company, and a former chairman of directors of the A.M.P, Society. Dr. Littlejohn was born in Sydney in April, 1867, and was educated at the Sydney Grammar School, and he later took his degree of B.A. at the Sydney University. He then proceeded to Edinburgh, where he went through his medical course and obtained his degree of M.D. On his return to Sydney he began practice as a medical practitioner at Croydon, and continued there until shortly before his death.

Dr. Littlejohn was honorary physician of the Children's Hospital, Glebe, for many years, and he was appointed non-resident medical officer of the Thomas Walker Convalescent Hospital, Concord, in 1900. Until a few weeks ago, he continued his work in that capacity. At the time of his death he was a vice-president of the Medical Benevolent Association.

He is survived by his widow, one son, and two daughters.
