'Archibald G. Campbell, who died in October 1946 at the age of 86 years, was one of the oldest of Collegians, having been entered here in 1872. He was always interested in pastoral pursuits and was recognised as an excellent sheep master. From the early 'nineties he lived in the Birregurra District at Ripple Vale, then later at Barbreck, and retired to Lorne in 1930. His sons, Keith, Allan and Ian, attended the College about 30 years ago; and the third generation of the family is now represented on the rolls.'
