Dr. Lawrence was sum moned, but found that a heart af fection, which had been accentuated by the exertion of running, had proved fatal. Deceased was 43 years of age, and had since her mother's death, ten years ago, been housekeeper for her younger broth...

AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SIR JOHN EVANS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 21 December 1933
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SIR JOHN EVANS. It is given to. few men to see so much of the world as Sir .John Evans, K.B., C.M.G., at present - and for niany years past the senior mem ber for Franklin in the. House . of Assembly, and1 fewer still possess the ability and get the opportunity to pass through so many phases, of the industrial and political lite as are. to the credit of Sir John. It was a happy thought therefore that prompted the suggestion that he should, while still able to fulfil with credit to himself and his country, the numerous' activities of his. daily routine, make a ' permanent record of his life, not for personal glorifica tion, but as an incentive to present and future generations to lead- simi lar-useful and successful lives. Though a resident of Hobart for the greater part of his life, Sir John- is probably as well known in . the Huon as in his adopted/ city, owing to the fact' that his management of con siderable; shipping business, and his political -activities' for ...
