Arthur Henry Warren (1888–1935)

Mr. Arthur H. Warren, who had been stationed at Wynyard as Divisional Forest Officer for the past three years, died at his home at Wynyard yesterday, at the age of 47 years. The late Mr. Warren went to King Island last week, and returned on Saturday suffering from influenza. This developed into pneumonia, and he died at 8.30 a.m. yesterday. He leaves a widow and one daughter.

The late Mr. Warren was appointed to the Tasmanian Forestry Department on July 5, 1921, and was first stationed at Zeehan, as District Forester for the Western district. He stayed at that station until December, 1930, when he was moved to Smithton, as officer for the North-Western district, remaining there until July, 1932. He was then transferred to Wynyard as Divisional Forestry Officer of the Northern division, taking charge of nurseries and plantations. He was also in charge of the Brickmakers State forest.

The Minister for Forests (Mr. R. Cosgrove) paid a tribute at Hobart last night to the work of the late Mr. Warren. “He was a most competent officer,” said the Minister, “and on behalf of the Government I extend to Mrs. Warren and daughter our sincere sympathy. It will be difficult to find another officer of his calibre, who could fill the position which he held for so many years with such credit to himself and to the entire satisfaction of the department.”

The funeral is to take place tomorrow afternoon at 3 o’clock. A short service is to be held at St. Stephen’s Church, and interment will take place in the new public cemetery, Wynyard.
