William Waugh

M, #16802, b. 14 May 1875, d. 8 Oct 1953
William Waugh
temporary head teacher at Dewhurst state school 1950
Note* William was probably born at home, on the family farm at Summerfield, and his birth was registered at the closest town, Raywood, in 1875. The family had moved to the area in 1870 from Mount Prospect.
William attended the Summerfield School at the age of three in order to keep up the numbers.[1]
The family moved to Kew, where William trained as a teacher at Kew State School. Pay was 2/6 per week. He was financially supported by his sisters. Finishing his training during the depression of the 1890s he accepted a position at Dunmunkle West in the Wimmera, but only received half pay. He later transferred to Boolite. He played cricket for Boolite and his great-grandson Peter still has his 1899 premiership cap.
There are no buildings left at Boolite. There was a memorial placed on the school site but only the stone base remains. The original school building has been relocated to Warracknabeal Secondary College where it is now used as the music room.
In 1905 he married Clara Maude Oram. The Oram family had also moved from the the Wimmera to Kew. Maude had been working as a nurse at the Kew Asylum where she met William's sisters. [3]
In 1915 William was transferred to Elphinstone Primary School. At his farewell from Boolite, the function was attended by the Minister for Agriculture and Water Supply, Mr. Hutchinson, who used the gathering to make a speech in support of the Peacock Government. [4]
The family moved into the new teacher residence next door to the Elphinstone school. In 1918 William was transferred to Garfield Primary School in Gippsland. Allan Waugh commented that William was dismayed to discover the Garfield residence was a mirror image of Elphinstone, and the that the linoleum he had moved would only fit if it was upside down.[3]
In 1933 the Waugh family moved to Castlemaine. At first they lived in a small cottage in Barker Street, before renting a large Gothic style house in Templeton Street.[3] In 1936 they moved to 16 Hall Street (since demolished). Allan Waugh recalled that this house had been relocated to the Hill street site, and all the floors sloped in different directions.
In 1939 and 1940 William was the head teacher at Chewton Primary School. He formally retired, but because of the man power shortage during World War Two, William taught at over 10 different schools around Victoria. He was still teaching at age 70 at the Sutherland Home for for Neglected and Destitute Children in Diamond Creek. William finally retired from teaching in 1951. [5]
William died at Castlemaine in 1953, and is buried in the Waugh plot, Boroondara General Cemetery, Kew, Victoria, Australia.1

  • 21 Sep 1915: AU REVOIR. Mr and Mrs W. Waugh, Entertained by Boolite and District Residents. GENUINE REGRET VOICED. IMMENSELY POPULAR RESIDENTS. Handsome Gifts.
    The Boolite hall was filled to overflowing last Friday night, when residents of the district and other people from considerable distances assembled to say good-bye to Mr and Mrs W. Waugh. And the parting was, indeed, a sad one, for the folk amongst whom they have moved and lived for a period of 15 years realised to the fullest that Mr Waugh and his good lady were, figuratively speaking, "gems of the first water." They were held in the highest esteem and beloved by all, and their departure has, we confidently assert, occasioned more regret than the removal of any other residents from that district. There must have been 200 people present on Friday night to honor such a worthy and popular couple, friends being present, from Minyip, Laen, Watchem, Carron, Lawler, Sheep Hills and Burrereo. A significant feature was the genuine tone of regret which characterised the various speeches. The Hon. Wm. Hutchinson (a personal friend of Mr Waugh's) made the trip purposely from Melbourne to join in the celebration, and who was entrusted with the duty of making the presentations. Mr Waugh was a man of many parts — a lover of clean, wholesome sport, and the many clubs of Boolite will greatly feel his departure, for he was always to the fore in the sporting life of the district. In social and church work there was never a more zealous worker than he, and any thing that made for the general progress and welfare of this community the residents wisely placed him in command, knowing full well that it would be piloted along successfully. Not once was their confidence misplaced. He was secretary to practically every public affair held at Boolite. It was at the instigation of Mr Waugh that the recent Jumble Fair at Boolite (for the Minyip Red Cross Society), was held, and it was mainly due to his capable management that the Fair yielded such a handsome sum — over £90. It was with one accord that the residents proclaimed : 'We are sorry to lose him ; he was such a jolly fine fellow.' By her many kindly acts, whether in the social, spiritual and general welfare of the district, Mrs Waugh cheerfully gave her services, and possessed of a lovable nature, yet, withal, an unobtrusive manner, she endeared herself to all. Mr Waugh has been the head teacher of Boolite State school for the past 15 years, and many an old scholar is now engaged carving out for themselves a successful career in life. But it is the young folk that were under his guidance who feel the wrench in losing such a kind and patient master, for the boys and girls simply adored him, and it was his constant aim to impart every scrap of his knowledge to his young charge, that they should advance as rapidly as possible in the battle of life, and here he has been eminently successful. The parents as well as the children, know too truly that by his departure they are thus deprived of a painstaking and clever teacher, and the gap caused will indeed be difficult to fill. Not only to the school children did Mr Waugh devote his time, for with the celebration of Arbor Day, and in other spare moments numerous trees were planted by the scholars under his direction, and today over 200 pretty trees of various kinds surround the school, and which greatly improve the grounds, besides affording excellent shelter for the children in summer time. Only 3 years ago the Boolite school was awarded first prize for the best kept school garden in the Wimmera district—a proud honor, when the limited water supply at country schools is considered, and a performance which teacher and scholars felt justly proud of. A clear moon shone from a bright, blue sky on Friday night, which made it pleasant for the travelling of visitors assembled to join in the residents' farewell to Mr. and Mrs Waugh. Mr Arthur Pyers, of Carron, discharged the duties of Chairman in a bright and happy manner. He said it was hardly necessary to remind them of the occasion which brought them together. Bidding farewell to Mr and Mrs Waugh and family was (to them all) not a pleasure, but a keen regret. It gave him pleasure to see such a record assemblage to do honor to their departing guests, and who must appreciate such a compliment— a compliment so well deserved. (Applause). Apologies were received from Messrs J. D. Heckle, A. Pitman, F. Glover, H. Habel, senr. Jas. Barnes, all of whom regretted being unable to be present, the latter gentleman expressing the opinion that Mr Waugh was "one of the whitest men he ever knew." With these few pleasing remarks, the Chairman announced that a programme of songs and recitations was before him, and which was then commenced, the opening number being the vigorous singing of The National Anthem by the whole company, who next joined in 'Auld Lang Syne.' Other items contributed were : — Song. 'Good-bye Dolly Gray,' Mr L. Duncan ; recitation, 'Aunt Tabitha,' Miss May Griffiths ; recitation, 'Lasca', Mr P. I. Webb, song, 'My Rosary,' Miss R. Weis ; recitation, 'A Tale of Courtship,' Mr A. Anderson; song, 'Snowflakes,' Miss Janet McDonald (encore); song, 'Idle Words, Miss F. Pascoe.
    PRESENTATION TO MR. WAUGH.
    Mr Hutchinson, who was warmly received on rising to make the presentation of an artistically illuminated address and a well filled purse of sovereigns to Mr Waugh, said their guest's name suggested the stormy times they we passing through. The whole world was engaged in a dreadful war; they were also at war politically (laughter). Unlike the William, who had plunged the whole world into grief, suffering and waste, and who averred it made for kulture and peace, the William they had met to honor that night differed greatly to the war lord of Germany. The contrast was great. He had faithfully won his way into the hearts and minds of the Boolite people (applause) and of a vast community. A thorough true sport, a gentleman and an invaluable citizen, these facts had stirred the people to assemble in such numbers that was never his privilege to see at Boolite hall. (Applause). It was a record gathering to honor a man who had served the district so well for such a number of years. (Hear, hear). The speaker next likened his good work for the advancement and welfare of the district to that of a fertilising deep-running stream, which worked silently, steadily and to the full extent, of its richness. This was characteristic of the guest's life in Boolite (applause) ; a man possessed of an irreproach able character. Many to whom he had given sound and helpful school training were now grown to man and womanhood, and were amongst our most respected residents. (Hear, hear). Others knew him to be a true sport, all regarded him as a splendid helper ; a valuable citizen. (Applause). No movement that made for the general good of the district lacked his assistance. All valued and honored him as a man and friend (hear, hear). That was why they assembled is such numbers. He was a true man's friend. (Applause). Before proceeding with the presentation he would call on Mr John Stephens to read the address, which was as follows: — Testimonial from the Residents of Boolite and District to Mr William Waugh, Head Teacher of the Boolite State School Dear Sir,— We, the residents of Boolite and district, take the opportunity on the occasion of your leaving this place for another portion of the State, after living 17 years in our midst, to express our high appreciation of your many admirable qualities as a man, a citizen, and a teacher of the young. Your kindly, earnest and, self-effacing character has won our hearts, and has set a good example. You have taken a wise and practical interest in all public affairs connected with the moral and material progress of the community, and as a teacher we know that you are regarded in the highest esteem by the Education Department and that our children have been under the training of one whose character and culture have exercised a great and enduring influence for good upon their lives. It is with special pleasure that we include Mrs Waugh in our tribute of appreciation. She has indeed been a true helpmate, and has ably and zealously seconded you in the valuable services you have rendered to the public welfare. While we regret deeply your departure, we wish you the truest happiness and success in your new sphere of labor. On behalf of the residents of Boolite and district, (Signed) W Hutchinson, J Stephens A Anderson, A J Pyers, R Wyllie, C Potter, J Penny, E Penny, W Penny A Glen, G Penny, H Habel, F Henke Mr Stephens, continuing, on behalf of the Boolite Cricket Club thanked their guest for the many valuable services he at all times rendered. They had had many excellent cricket trips together, and he felt sorry to know they would now cease. He (the speaker) considered Mr Waugh was the best all-round man in the Boolite district (applause) and he regretted' very much his departure.
    Mr Robt. Wyllie said he had known their guest from the time he was appointed to the Boolite school. He had taught his son, and it was a great pity such a capable and conscientious teacher was leaving them — a pity for the children who were progressing so well under his tuition. (Applause). His departure means a great loss to the community, for in sports, church, and social work he always took a leading part. He (the speaker) trusted that their guest's new sphere of labor would prove beneficial in many ways to his wife and self. ( Applause) - Mr. A. McLean said Boolite folk were sorry to lose Mr and Mrs Waugh. Mr Waugh had taken the lead in all district affairs, and there was not a better man in Boolite. (Applause; If a 'bob or two' was required he was always there (laughter and applause). To Mrs Waugh he ascribed Mr Waugh's popularity (laughter), as everyone knew him, and it was due to her careful training (laughter and applause). Before she married him scarcely anyone knew him (loud laughter), but he was a jolly good fellow. (Hear, hear). Wherever their friends might go he (the speaker) wished, them health, wealth and prosperity, and he would go one step further by 'saying that was the unanimous wish of the inhabitants. (Loud applause).
    Mr I Webb spoke of the guest's straightforwardness in all business dealings. The more one knew of him the more he became liked. (Hear, hear). It was a pleasure to meet such a man: He (the speaker) considered such a man 'grows on you;' he was one of a million. (Applause). Mr C. Griffiths said it was not idle curiosity which brought him there. It was to pay his best respects to Mr Waugh. (Hear, hear) The speaker bestowed a high compliment on their guest for the thorough teaching and training he had given the present and old scholars of Boolite school. A few weeks ago he was present at a send-off to three boys (who were going to fight for King and country), whom Mr Waugh had taught their ABC. What he (the speaker) had seen and knew of those boys fully convinced him that Mr Waugh had made men of them. (Applause). A careful training in early life was very essential, so that in the years which followed young men would stand firm against the blast of any storm. Mr Waugh's old scholars were a great credit to him, and wherever he went the good work so faithfully done by him he would continue to do. (Applause). Of Mrs Waugh he could not speak, not knowing her, but she must be a worthy woman to be his wife. (Loud applause.)
    Mr Joe Abrahams (on behalf of his fellow school-teachers), voiced the warm admiration they had for Mr Waugh, and amongst whom he was a great favorite. That he had won the respect and esteem of the whole community was demonstrated by the large and representative attendance that night, and he justly deserved the confidence of his brother teachers, on behalf of whom he (the speaker) wished Mr and Mrs Waugh the best of future happiness, health and prosperity (Applause.) Mr. Hutchinson, addressing Mr Waugh, said it was a pleasure to be in the happy position of being entrusted with the duty of making him this presentation, consisting of an illuminated address and a well filled. purse of sovereigns, on behalf of his many friends— the whole countryside. In subscribing a purse of sovereigns his friends knew the purse. would remain, but the contents would soon vanish. At all times appreciating his genial disposition. and holding the kindliest thoughts of him, they also decided that he should takeaway something more enduring than the sovereigns in recognition of the many valuable services he had so cheerfully rendered the district, and its golden esteem for him. (Applause). His friends gladly knew that he had proved worthy of both gifts, to which they had so generously and freely given, but, continued the speaker, it would not require these tokens to remind Mr Waugh of the lively affection and genuine appreciation the Boolite people have for him. (Applause). Wherever he may go he will find a community of appreciative people, who will quickly know that he will do his work with a knowledge that is rightly applied. (Applause). 'But,' continued the speaker, ' wherever you go there will be this significant fact, that no people could more highly appreciate your labors than the people of this district have done, and such abiding love as they hold for you could not be greater. (Loud applause). The applause continued, as the speaker handed to Mr Waugh the hand some gifts subscribed to by his large army of friends.
    MR. WAUGH RESPONDS.
    Mr Waugh received quite an ovation on rising to respond. This he did in quiet, modest tones. He felt he did not deserve all the fine compliments showered on him by the various speakers, and to listen to Mr Hutchinson, speech-making appeared easy; to him it was not. However, if he had a few of them in school he would devote a lesson on discount. (Laughter), They had praised him too highly. In Boolite they, were all one big family, and to work amongst them was a pleasure. He had been credited with taking the lead in any effort, but he considered there was no leader. He appreciated Mr Stephens' remarks, and expressed great sorrow in leaving Boolite and his many kind friends. When word came for him to proceed to Elphinstone he carefully analysed his feelings and thoughts. It meant more work and the making of new friends, and he felt that it was a severe wrench to leave Boolite. But his wife had to be considered. Mrs Waugh's duties would be lighter, as it was only a short journey to Castlemaine (a nearer town than Minyip for shopping and in case of sickness); they would be within a stone's throw of the Elphinstone railway station, whilst his wife would be nearer to her parents, who were now getting up in years. There were sometimes dark clouds in their lives when their child was ill, but it would have been far worse and dreary bad it not been for the warm handshake, sympathy, and willingness of their Boolite friends to at all times render them every assistance. They could never forget such kindness. He could not. express himself as he would like to, but he appreciated the flattering remarks of the speakers, and from the very bottom of his heart he thanked them for their valuable and thoughtful gifts. (Loud applause). Song, 'Annie Laurie,' Mrs W. 'Davey ; recitation, ' Christopher Columbo.' Mr Perman; song, 'She who gives her only son," Miss Doreen Davey, encore ; recitation. 'Pure and Simple,' Mr W. J. Stevens; song, 'Don't forget the ship that carried you over,' Miss K. Morrison, encore ; comic song, 'The Grand Hotel,' Mr I. Webb, encore; song, 'In the shadow of the Pines,' Miss E. Wyllie
    PRESENTATION TO MRS. WAUGH.
    Mr Hutchinson next presented to Mrs Wangh a massive set of silver-backed hair brushes and mirror, enclosed in an oak case, stylishly lined in blue satin, as a parting gift from her Boolite and district friends. It would be a painful wrench to this lady to leave a district in which her whole life had been spent and amongst such warm hearted friends. Her last act at night and first act in the morning (when using these dainty articles) would recall the happy faces and pleasant memories of those she was leaving behind. Their pretty and useful gift would prove everlasting, and so would the loving thoughts of her many admirers (applause), as her kindly nature and loving disposition won the warmest appreciation of all. He asked her to accept this lovely token as a mark of the respect and esteem in which she was held at Boolite, and hoped such a gift would be a kindly reminder of all the good friends, who would ever retain the fondest affection for her (Loud and continued applause). - Mr Waugh, on behalf of his wife, sincerely thanked the speaker for his kind remarks and friends for their goodness in thinking so kindly of his wife. Eleven years ago he made her his bride, and coming to reside at Boolite he told her that she would soon have the same high opinion of the residents as he had' formed. This proved correct, for his wife, if it were possible, thought even more of them than himself. (Applause). He sincerely appreciated the courtesy and many kind favors extended his wife by the Boolite ladies during the past five or six weeks — Mrs King had proved a 'real brick' to them. Mrs Waugh didn't expect such a handsome gift to remind her of the love and esteem they had for her, but their generous action she would always remember. (Loud applause). Song, ' Cardigan the Fearless,' Mr L. Duncan.
    THE WAUGH CHILDREN RECEIVE GIFTS.
    Still another presentation, this time to Jean, Dulcie and Lindsay Waugh, the two latter children each receiving a prettily designed serviette ring, whilst Jean (the eldest of the trio) was the recipient of a nice gold brooch. Mr Hutchinson (addressing Jean) told her their school mates had given them these dainty gifts, for they were anxious to give you all something before you parted. He hoped they would never forget their little school mates at Boolite, and as they got older to always keep fast their memory. (Applause).
    Jean, with a winsome smile, then took charge of the gifts, amidst applause. Mr Waugh thanked the boys and girls for so kindly re membering his children. 'They didn't really need these nice tokens to remind them of their play-mates, amongst whom they had had a really good time. It was hard for him, indeed, that afternoon to watch Jean say good-bye to all her school chums. Again thanking the children for their appreciation of his children, Mr Waugh remarked that if the same kindness and consideration were shown by parents and scholars to his successor (he hoped they would treat him kindly), as that which he (the speaker) had so long enjoyed 'You won't kick him out in 15 years, either,' concluded Mr Waugh, amidst laughter and applause.
    Song, 'There's sunshine on my side of the street.' Miss Janet McDonald (encore number, 'Little grey home in the west.') This little girl's delightful singing was a feature of the evening. The Chairman remarked that their programme had come to an end. He expressed pleasure at seeing Mr Hutchinson present, who had chosen the gifts that had been presented to Mr and Mrs Waugh and family. They had enjoyed his company, and should feel honored to know that he had purposely travelled from Melbourne to pay his kindest regards to their friends, Mr and Mrs Waugh. Mr John Stephens moved a comprehensive vote of thanks to the performers, who had contributed so much to the enjoyment of the evening. Mr D. Blackley seconded the remarks complimenting Mrs Duncan for her past good work at functions of various kinds held at Boolite, and for that night acting as accompaniste to the performers. The vote of thanks was carried enthusiastically. Mr. Hutchinson, in responding on behalf of the performers, expressed his pleasure in listening to such a delightful programme, and which the audience evidently appreciated, judging by their generous applause. He proposed a hearty vote of thanks. For Mr Pyers for so ably presiding and that gentleman suitably acknowedged the compliment. Auld Lang Syne, For they are Jolly Good Fellows, The National Anthem, and a special verse for our lads at the front was enthusiastically sung by the whole assemblage. The hall decorations, consisting of small flags, representing the Allies, palms and flowers, are worthy of special mention, as they were both artistic and effective Supper was partaken of, the good ladies of Boolite and district fairly hiding the tables with eatables of the choicest variety and there was no end to them.
    The young folk then prepared for dancing; meanwhile a merry party of ladies and gents, enjoyed themselves by singing popular choruses. Dancing was continued until the early hours of Saturday morning, the young folk enjoying themselves immensely. Mr and Mrs Waugh and family left Minyip by Saturday mornings train, a large number of of Boolite and Minyip friends assembling at the station to wish them goodbye. Mr Waugh's successor is Mr Reuben Maher, of Hawksburn.15
  • 27 Dec 1917: CASTLEMAINE. Mr. W. Waugh, head teacher at Elphinstone State school, has been transferred to Garfield, and Mr. Robinson, of Gippsland, will take charge at Elphinstone.16
