“Victorian Church Identity Dead.
MELBOURNE, Nov. 12.
Canon Percy William Robinson, one of the best known Anglican clergymen in Victoria, died in Prince Henry’s Hospital on Tuesday night aged 69. During the depression he ran a soup kitchen in his parish hall at Prahran. He was rector of St. Mark’s Camberwell, until early this year. For many years he was associated with the Church of England Boys Society, first as honorary general secretary and later as chairman.”
