    The Rev. Paul Hamilton Morris Joseph, third son of Mr. Morris Joseph, of Carlton, Tasmania, who was ordained in the Hindmarsh Congregational Church, of which he is the pastor, was on Monday, November 10, married in the same church, to Miss Dorothy Leigh Bevan, youngest daughter of the Rev. Llewellyn D. Bevan, L.L.D., principal of Parkin College. The ceremony was performed by the father of the bride (Dr. Bevan), assisted by the Rev. Thomas Hope and the Rev. Willett Bevan (brother of the bride).
    The bride looked pretty and charming as she proceeded up the aisle on the arm of her brother (Rev. Willett Bevan). Miss Bevan, who was given away by her mother, was robed in a handsome gown of white silk with a train of beautiful white shot silk with silver Oriental, silk brought from Jerusalem by her parents some time ago. She wore a tulle veil and coronet of orange blos- soms, and cord, and a pretty shower bouquet of white and pink roses.
    The two bridesmaids in attendance were Miss Whiting and Miss Scammell, both of whom were gowned in pale pink crepe de chine, and pink and white hats. The bride's train was borne by two little boys—Master Medhurst Bevan (nephew of the bride), and Master Colin Robjohns.— They were both picturesquely attired in white poplin. Mrs. Bevan, mother of the bride, was gowned in black silk with' silver lace trimming over which was worn a lovely Brussells lace shawl. She wore a bonnet of white lace and feathers, and cord, and superb bouquet of azalias. The best man was Mr. Robert Baker, and the groomsman Mr. Rudolph Bronner. The church was exquisitely decorated by a number of young ladies of the church with white wistaria and white roses, and asparagus fern. From a floral arch of ferns and white roses was suspended a large white bell from which white festoons wore looped across the church to the memorial windows on either side. Two arches were also set up midway down the aisle, and formed of greenery and white roses, which added to the artistic effect. Miss M. G. Lawrence, church organist, played Mendelssohn's 'Wedding March' as the bride and bridegroom were leaving. The reception took place in the Congregational lecture hall, which was tastefully decorated, and the tables were nicely arranged with, good things, while the bridal party- occupied places on the platform. The usual toasts were honored.
    Amongst the guests were Mrs. Russell Hurditch (Victoria), sister of the bride, who was gowned in a pink sponge cloth coat and skirt and pink hat to match. Mrs. Willett Bevan (sister-in-law of the bride) wore a shantung coat and skirt, with dark blue hat and pink roses.

  • 1 Aug 1951, Popular S.E.C. Staff Members Wed
    TWO FORMER popular members of the S.E.C. staff at Dandenong Miss Betty Evelyn Savory, of Berwick, and Mr. Geoffrey Gaborit, of Dandenong, were married, in the presence of many friends and relatives at Christ Church, Berwick, on July 14th.
    Given away by her father, the fair-haired bride, who is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Savory, of Clyde Rd., Berwick, made an attractive bride in a lovely gown of cream magnolia satin with small collar, fitted bodice and long sleeves.
    Small buttons extended from the collar to the bustle at the back and the skirt extended to form a long train. A coronet of orange blossom held Betty’s finger-tip veil in place and she carried a trailer bouquet of cream hyacinths, narcissi and orchids.
    The bride’s only attendant was her little niece, Denise Rutherford, of Moonee Ponds, who made a fetching little flower girl. She was a picture in her pale blue frock with its velvet bodice and 3-tiered tulle skirt. Matching mittens were worn and from her basket pink carnations and maidenhair peeped.
    The groom, who is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Gaborit, of Day St., Dandenong, had his brother, Mr. Tom Gaborit, as best man.
    The church had been prettily decorated by Misses Meyer and Smith with heather, lilies and ferns. Miss Hillbrick, organist, played the hymn, “O, Perfect Love”, during the ceremony, which was performed by Revs. C. S. Smith and W. Jarman.
    Later parents of both the bride and groom welcomed guests to a reception held at the bride’s home. Mrs. Savory wore a grey suit, black accessories and smart plumed hat, pinning on a spray of hyacinths. Mrs. Gaborit favored a junior navy ensemble with matching accessories, relieved with a spray of Christmas roses. The beau tiful 2-tiered wedding cake which graced the bridal table was made and decorated by the groom’s sister, Mrs. W. G. Ridgeway, of Lang Lang. When the happy couple left on their honeymoon the bride was wearing an attractive junior navy suit and coat with matching handbags and shoes. Her blouse, hat and gloves were dusky pink.
    Mr. and Mrs. Gaborit will be making their home at Healesville, to which centre the groom has just been transferred. The newlweds received many lovely and useful presents for their new home.9
  • 8 Aug 1951, BERWICK BRIDE. MR. AND MRS. GEOFF. GABORIT snapped after their recent marriage at Berwick. The bride was formerly Miss Betty Savory, of Berwick, and both were former popular members of the S.E.C. staff at Dandenong.3

  • 22 Dec 1936, DOMINATING FAR EAST. Japan's Determination. PROFESSOR'S VIEWS. BRISBANE, Monday.
    Professor Louis R. Bevan, Professor of Political Science in the Yenching University, Peking, who passed through Brisbane on the Tanda today for Melbourne, said that Japan was determined to dominate the Far East.
    Professor Bevan, who has spent 30 years in Government and University education work in China, said that Japan was forced to dominate the Far East economically, in order to keep pace with her industrial development. She had earmarked China for her own, but whether she was going to extend her political penetration did not seem so certain as it did a few years ago.
    It seemed, he said, that Japan would attempt to assume the same control over North China as she had over Manchuria, so as to place a band of Japanese influence between China and Russia. Whether Japanese economic and political penetration would lead as Japan claimed it would, to more commercial prosperity advantageous to both countries, no one knew. There was tremendous opposition in China to the extension of Japanese influence, particularly among the intellectual classes.11

  • 18 Dec 1913, DR. PENRY V. BEVAN. A private cablegram has been received in Adelaide announcing the death of Dr. Penry Vaughan Bevan, M.A., D.Sc. youngest son of Dr. Bevan, of Parkin College. It will be remembered that Dr Bevan's name was announced as one of the members of the British Association who are to visit Australia next year. He had been appointed as secretary of the physics department in the association. Although only 38 years of age, Dr. Bevan had already made a position for himself in the British scientific world. After a brilliant course in science and mathematics at the University of Melbourne, he went to Cambridge, where he took the high place of fourth wrangler in the mathematical tripos in 1900, and in the following year was placed in the first division of the first class in the mathematical tripos, part II. He was elected to a fellowship at Trinity College, Cambridge, his own college, and subsequently was appointed to the position of professor of physics and chemistry in the Royal Holloway College, Egham. In addition to his work in the college, Dr. Bevan had been carrying on original research work on the absorption and diffusion of light by the vapors of certain of the metals. He had published the results of his work in several papers, which have been read before the Royal Society, which gave practical effect to its recognition of Dr. Bevan's work and its value and importance, by making grants from the funds of the society for the purchase of apparatus for the prosecution of his research. In recognition of his services to the cause of science, the University of Cambridge conferred on him the degree of doctor of science, and the Royal Astrono mical Society expressed its appreciation of his work, and referred to the great ad- vantage the results of his investigation would be in astronomical science. Dr. Bevan's brilliant and deep knowledge of mathematics made him specially fitted for the branch of science to which he had devoted himself, namely, physico-chemistry. Dr. Bevan was thought very highly of by such men as J. J. Thompson, Lord Rayleigh, and Sir Oliver Lodge, and his work was recognised and esteemed by the scientific world of the continent. There ia no doubt that if his life had been spared he would have become one of the leading scientific men of his times.

    In addition to his work as a scientist, Dr. Bevan took much interest in religious work, one of his most recent publications being a paper on the relation of religion and science, showing how it was quite possible for a scientific man to be an earnest Christian. Much of his spare time was given to Church and other Christian work, especially in connection with the Christian Student Union movement in the schools and universities of England, and with the Congregational Church at Egham, of which he was a member.

    Dr. Bevan also took great interest inthe political questions of the time being a strong supporter of the Liberal Party and a rigorous free Churchman. During the days of the Education Bill struggle he took a strong position, and was to be found in the ranks of the Sassive resisters. During his early years Dr. Bevan was not robust, and the change of residence from England to Australia, did much to strengthen him physically. He early gave evidence of the bent of his mind, gaining the first prize for mathematics at his school in London, though, compelled to take the examination while in bed with rheumatic fever. The constant care of his parents and the recognition of his promise of his mental power, and the opportunities in the way of edu cation and training, however, enabled him to grow out of the youthful delicate ness and to take the position he had made for himself.

    For the last two or three years Dr. Bevan had been in indifferent health, suffering from some internal trouble, brought on partly by unceasing devotion to his work. A couple of weeks ago a cable was received saying that he had undergone an operation, the details of which have not yet reached Australia, but that he was convalescent. The later news comes as a great grief to his parents and to the other members of the family.

    He left a widow and five young children in England.10
