William Henry Walsh (1854–1932)

Mr. William Henry Walsh, who died at Perth on July 15, was the eldest son of the late Mr. W. H. Walsh, former Minister for Lands and Speaker of the Queensland Legislative Assembly. The deceased, who was born at Parramatta, spent his early years on Degilbo station in the Burnett district. He was educated at Bowyer's School, Sydney, and later at Goulburn. After leaving school he entered the service of the Bank of Australasia in Brisbane, and after a short period he decided to gain experience in sheep, and went to Bowen Downs station. Subsequently he went to Western Australia, and deciding to strike out for himself, soon became a well known stud sheep and wool classer. In this capacity he rendered signal service to sheep-breeders in the western State, and he was responsible for many well classed flocks and clips. The late Mr. Walsh is survived by his brother, Mr. A. D. Walsh, also two sisters, Mrs. L. R. Huxtable, of Leura, N.S.W., and Mrs. E. A. Falkner, who is at present residing in England,
