|Father*||Peter Graham McArthur b. 4 Jul 1819, d. 1 Jul 1897|
|Mother*||Margaret McLean b. 15 Sep 1834, d. 23 Mar 1883|
|Name Variation||Arthur Norman McArthur was also known as Dr Arthur Norman McArthur.|
|Place in Upper Beac*|
|Anecdote||McArthur, Dr Arthur Norman (1869-1951), Dr Norman McArthur, the son of Peter McArthur and Margaret nee McLean was a boarder at the College from 1881 to 1886, and excelled in school sports, being especially interested in boxing and football. He was a member of the 1st Football XVIII from 1884 to 1886 and the 1st Cricket XI in 1885 and 1886. In the 1886 Annual Report his football talent was described as ‘generally roves, plays with dash, uses his weight to advantage and a good kick.’ At Cricket,-‘Good bat, has scored well this season, fair fielder.’ At tennis-‘a good player, gets plenty of pace on, needs practice. From the Geelong College he proceeded to medical studies at Ormond College, Melbourne University and at King's College, London. By 1909 he was Senior Gynaecological Surgeon at St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne and became a distinguished medical consultant practising in Collins Street. At University he gained a double blue for cricket and football.|
A member of the well-known pioneer family of Meningoort, Camperdown, he was a worthy follower of their tradition, and was an original member of the Old Collegians' Association which he helped to form in 1908, and of which he became President in 1909 and 1910. His keen support of the College was lifelong, and after the tragic death of Norman Morrison he and Neil Campbell were largely responsible for the survival of the College. He, it was, who supplied the drive for the erection of the Norman Morrison Memorial Hall. His father Peter McArthur of Camperdown was one of the original twelve members of the Corresponding Committee formed at the establishment of the School in 1861. Dr McArthur was a member of the Geelong College Council from its inception in 1908 until 1947 and acted as Chairman of the Council during 1939 to 1941 during Arthur Coles' absence. Dr McArthur married Millicent Elizabeth Noakes. His brothers, Leslie Graham, Robert Ernest, Peter Campbell, Sir William Gilbert Stewart and John Neil McArthur also attended the College as did his son Peter Norman McArthur.
Dr Pillow and Dr Wettenhall at the Council Meeting of 4 May, 1951 described Dr MacArthur: ‘His entertaining personality was highly appreciated at College functions, with his ready wit, sound judgment, and diverting reminiscences. His example was outstanding, and one of which we can all be proud. It is impossible to exaggerate the debt owed to him by the College.’

(1869 - 1950) M.B. (Melb), M.R.C.S. (Eng.), F.A.C.S. (Hon.), F.R.A.C.S.
Born 12 July 1869 Camperdown, Victoria, Australia
Died 11 December 1950 Australia
Occupation Gynaecologist, Medical practitioner and Obstetrician
There have been few more colourful persons in the medical world of Australia than Arthur Norman McArthur, affectionately called "Potts" by his many friends. He lived to the eightieth year of a very full life in his profession of medicine, in lusty sports, such as boxing, polo and foxhounds, and in public and philanthropic interests. Into whatever he pursued, McArthur threw his whole heart and great physical and mental powers.
McArthur was the fifth son of Peter McArthur, pioneer pastoralist of the Western District of Victoria. Born at "Meningoort", his father’s station, near Camperdown, on July 12 1869, educated at Geelong College, and studying medicine at the University of Melbourne, where he was a resident in Ormond, he finished his course in London, becoming M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. in 1895. Three years later he was appointed House Surgeon in the Launceston General Hospital. Returning to England to marry Mellicent, daughter of Wickham Noakes of Selsdon Park, Surrey. McArthur subsequently commenced practice as an obstetrician and gynaecologist in Collins Street, Melbourne.
In 1903 he took the degrees of Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Medicine of the University of Melbourne, and was appointed Honorary Obstetric and Outpatient Surgeon to the Women’s Hospital.
In 1905 he began a long period of association with St. Vincent’s Hospital, eventually becoming its Senior Honorary Gynaecologist. He resigned his Women’s Hospital appointment in 1909 and ceased to practice obstetrics.
McArthur’s interests in the field of medicine were varied, his achievements many and he evolved some special operative techniques. One of them was demonstrated to Dr. William Mayo (of Rochester U.S.A.) when the latter visited Australia in 1924; this resulted in McArthur being elected a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He organized a fund which raised £6,000 to buy radium for St. Vincent’s Hospital, and was prominent in a campaign, under the Chairmanship of Mr. B.T. Zwar, to organize cancer clinics.
He was a foundation Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, and a member of Council of the Victorian Branch of the British Medical Association (being first elected thereto in 1916). McArthur was a regular contributor to "The Medical Journal of Australia" on the subjects in which he specialized.
Outside medicine, McArthur’s great loves were sport and country life. He was a University blue in both cricket and football and was an amateur boxer of the top grade, in London in student days being runner-up in the inter-hospital heavyweight championship. He was for many years Chairman of the Victorian Amateur Boxing and Wrestling Championships. He played polo from early youth, was captain of the Melbourne Polo Club for four years, and with his three elder brothers had formed a famous polo team of his early years in the Western District.
Field shooting was possibly his favourite pastime and the openings of the quail and duck seasons were sacred - no professional work then. Accompanying this was active interest in game and native flora and fauna preservation. He was for many years Chairman of the Game Preservation Society of Victoria, and of the Advisory Council of Fauna and Flora of Victoria.
In his latter years, McArthur became more and more crippled with osteoarthritis of the hips, but his lively sense of humour never deserted him and right to the end he was ready to tell a good story from an unending fund of reminiscences.
He died on December 11th 1950 and his final jest was to leave a sum of money in order that his friends could hold a "wake". So, after the funeral these friends foregathered and drank a toast to "good shooting in the next world". Norman McArthur was a fine and generous personality, one of the best sons of Victoria’s squatting era, and a man of exceptionally wide accomplishments.19

|Village Bell*||Sep 1987||The article reads: PETER McARTHUR'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY|
If you enjoy a good yarn and are interested in the early history of Upper Beaconsfield, make sure you read 'Whimsy and a Little Bull' by Peter McArthur. Mr. McArthur's family owned an orchard here early this century and visited it regularly from Melbourne. The hazards of early horse transport and motor-cars, running an orchard, and, later, raising pigs, local cricket, and making the golf course, plus characters such as Boss Shorthouse and Claud Harris, are described and illustrated with vim and humour in what was clearly a favourite period of the author's life.
The first three chapters are likely to be of most interest to you, the remaining chapters recall his life and experiences in Naracoorte S.A. where he took up land, and his years in the Australian Army.
The author will be signing copies of the book at the Upper Beaconsfield Hall on Monday, 5th October, from 10.00 a.m.4
