A Popular Singapore Resident

His many friends in Singapore and elsewhere in Malaya will learn with deep regret that Mr. A. G. (Alec) Anthony died at the General Hospital yesterday morning. The news will come as a shock, for although Mr. Anthony had been in poor health for a fairly long time he was out and about until only a few days ago.

Mr. Anthony was 49 years of age. The second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Anthony of Penang, Mr. Alexander Gregory Anthony was born in Penang. He came to Singapore in 1901 as an assistant in the firm of Messrs Huttenbach Brothers, subsequently reconstructed under the style of Huttenbach, Lazarus and Sons, Ltd. Mr. Anthony remained with the firm until 1925, at which time he was managing director.

From 1925, Mr. Anthony carried on business in partnership as an exchange and share broker.

For two or three years Mr. Anthony was a member of the Municipal Commission and he was also a Justice of the Peace. Of a genial and generous disposition Mr. Anthony was popular with everybody with whom he came in contact and he will be missed by all who knew him.


The funeral of Mr. Alexander Gregory Anthony, which took place at Bidadari Cemetery yesterday, was very largely attended.
