  • 30 May 1900, GEELONG. On Tuesday flags were flying at half mast out of respect for Mr. Andrew White, a prominent resident of the district, who passed away on Monday. The deceased gentleman, who was of genial disposition and as keen a lover of the turf as the late Messrs. Donald Wallace and W. R. Wilson, was formerly a member of the Connewarre Road Board, and since the time that it merged into the South Barwonshire council he had continuously sat as a representative of the ratepayers. On several occasions he occupied the presidential chair. One of his sons is now secretary to the shire. The late Mr. White, who resided in the Geelong district for upwards of 50 years, held the position of returning officer for the South-Western Province up to the time of his death.8
