Frank Botting South (?–1942)

Mr. Frank Botting South, of 29 Lynington street, Tusmore, died on Friday after an illness of a few days. Mr. South was well known in business circles in Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. Forty years ago, in conjunction with the late Mr. Sydney Stott, of Melbourne, he founded the business of Stott & Hoare (SA) Ltd, and Stott's Business College in Adelaide. He also had business interests in Melbourne and Perth, and was a director of Cafpirco (Forestatton and Timber Milling interests, Mount Gambier), also of Ramsay & Hall Pty. Ltd., Melbourne. Mr. South was an expert shorthand writer. In his early years he was one of the first shorthand writers to pass the 200 words a minute speed test, and was one of the few South Australians to gain the law court reporter licence of Victoria. He was formerly secretary of the North Adelaide League Football club, the Adelaide and Suburban and Federal Football Association, and the North Adelaide Cricket Association. He was actively engaged in war work and was organiser for Burnside of the Red Cross Civilian Relief Depots. His only son, Lieut. K. H. South, is serving with the AIF abroad, and one daughter is with the WAAAF.
