John Harvey (Jack) Maclellan (1899–1922)

News was received by cable in Melbourne to-day of the death in London, as the result of a motor accident, of Mr. Jack Maclellan, second son of Mr. John Maclellan, chairman of directors of Foy and Gibson Proprietary. Mr. Jack Maclellan went to Englaud about a year ago to complete his education at Cambridge University. He was a young man of great promise, and a great favorite with all who knew him because of his high spirits, winning personality, and all-round excellent qualities.
