Woolf, Louis Arnold (1863–1938)

Mr. Louis Woolf, who died at Wentworth Falls, New South Wales, on Saturday last, was, until he left Western Australia nearly two years ago to live in Sydney, one of the best-known figures in Perth. In his younger days Mr. Woolf was associated with Sir (then Mr.) Edmund Barton, Mr. B. R. Wise and other leading federalists. Coming to Western Australia he stood as a candidate for the first Federal Senate. Mr. Woolf was an ardent freetrader and a keen student of economics, and practised in Perth as a chartered accountant, being senior partner of the firm of Woolf and Templeton.
