Arthur J. Herder (1902) remembered

Arthur J.Herder came to Sidney in 1902 to read Law. A keen athlete, rugby player and rower, he graduated in 1905. After working as a lawyer in Canada, he served in the Great War with the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. He was killed in December 1917 at Cambrai, France.

For ninety years, Arthur's name was unaccountably omitted from the College War Memorial. After a visit from his family, it has now been added, and so for the first time this year, Arthur will be remembered along with all the other members of College who gave their lives in the course of the two world wars.

The names will be read, and the Master will lay the College wreath in the College Chapel, on Remembrance Sunday, November 11, at 11am.
