  • 29 Jun 1934, WEDDING Rowe-Bobardt
    St. George's Presbyterian Church, East St. Kilda, was decorated with white and golden flowers yesterday evening for the wedding of Elizabeth Louise, daughter of Mrs. I. A. Bobardt, of Dunraven, Balaclava, to Clifford; youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Rowe, of Beechworth. White and gold were the colours chosen by the bride for her gown and those of her attendants. Old Ivory Brussels lace mounted on ninon and made on a satin foundation formed the lovely wedding gown, which had a sweeping train covered by a long trained veil of deep ivory tulle. Orange blossom girdled the waist and bound the veil to the bride's head, and she carried white azaleas and lily of the valley. The Misses Merle Bald, Kathleen Smith, and Joan Rowe attended her. Their frocks were of ivory chiffon, with draped fichus round the V-neck- line, and trains caught at the waist with golden roses. Golden leaves encircled their heads, and they carried bouquets of Cloth of Gold roses. Sir Walter Leitch gave the bride away, and the ceremony was performed by the Rev. Farquhar Chisholm.
    Afterward about 100 guests were entertained at wedding dinner at Tudor Court, where the bride's mother received with her sisters the Misses Swan. Her gown of burgundy crepe romaine was worn with a matching velvet wrap, and she carried Duchess of York pansies.7

  • 14 Aug 1940, MRS. EDITH M. FLOOD
    Mrs Flood (formerly Miss Edith Mildred Greer), first superintendent and relieving nurse of the Victorian Bush Nursing Association, died at her home on August 5.
    In 1911 the Bush Nursing Association was established, and by 1913 there were 13 nursing centres, and honorary inspec tion became impossible. The "Walter and Eliza Hall" Trust then undertook to pay the salary of a reliever, and Miss Greer was appointed. She travelled over the whole of Victoria as centre after centre was opened, and when she resigned in 1921, on the occasion of her marriage, there were 33 nursing centres and one hospital. On that occasion the central council and the centres expressed their high appreciation of the excellent work which she had done, and presented her with a fitting memorial of her work.3
  • 5 Nov 1940, Equity Trustees Company and Frederick E T Cobb are applying for probate of the will and codicil of Edith Mildred Flood, late of 21 Oak st., Hawthorn, widow who died on August 4.

James MacDougall

M, #9266, b. 1859, d. 8 Apr 1942
Anecdote*Wire products Other makers of steel products grew up around BHP, largely following discussion with that Company. BHP was instrumental in attracting James MacDougall to set up a wire production plant in Newcastle. MacDougall had founded a very successful company, Austral Nail Co. Ltd. in South Melbourne, making mainly barbed wire, for which they used imported rod, and drawn wire. In 1913 they supplied about one half of the Victorian market. As part of the deal with MacDougall, BHP purchased a continuous rod mill utilizing the latest technology and situated it in Newcastle. BHP also financed the purchase of equipment by MacDougall when it was set up alongside the BHP Works and where the rod mill first produced in 1918. MacDougall drew the first wire in Newcastle in 1919 and, in the end, produced some 40,000 tonnes in the first year. In 1920 a galvanizing bath was added, together with equipment for producing barbed wire and, at this stage, they were the largest BHP customer. Within a couple of years, however, the parent Austral Nail Company, had merged with another company, Rylands Brothers, to reform as Rylands Bros. (Aust.) Ltd. BHP acquired a controlling interest in Rylands in 1925. The Titan Manufacturing Company produced a similar product range to Austral Nail Co. and were situated close by in Victoria. Titan had been founded by a John Rose in 1888 and went into new premises around the start of the war, taking rod from BHP. In 1927, the nail and barbed wire manufacture of this company were integrated with Rylands through a BHP takeover. Australian Wire Rope Works Pty. Ltd. was established in Newcastle in 1923 as an outcome to talks between BHP and English company, Bullivants. Production of wire rope products began in 1925 and some years later, BHP bought out the Bullivants interests. There were many important technological developments during the first decade of Australian production of wire, led mostly from Newcastle and coming largely from the influence of J. K. MacDougall, son of the earlier James MacDougall. His aim was to supply quality feed wire to the wire ropeworks and this led to the introduction of the first patenting plant, a heat treatment process which was followed initially by an air quench but later developed to a lead bath quench. He instigated an all-steel fencing system with the 'Star Picket' post, patented in 1926 and the 'Key Hole Tie' for baling wool and other items, patented in 1930. After considerable development backed strongly by Essington Lewis, the first multi-hole wire drawing machine was installed which projected Australian wire industry technology into the world front ranks for the first time. The subsequent procurement of tungsten carbide dies from Germany in 1934 and the addition of water cooling at the die and block, combined with other refined practices in cleaning and coating, led to dramatic increases in finishing speeds to 12.5 m per second compared with only 2.0 m per second with single block stands. Welding of rod coils introduced continuous processing and reduced eight separate operations to two. At this time, 1935, Rylands, Newcastle, was drawing equivalent wires twice as fast as the best American mills and three times faster than the British and so overseas mills began changing to Rylands' practices. Speeds of finishing were later increased to 22-23 m per second.1
