    COURIER-MAIL: BRISBANE DIARY. BRISBANE'S oldest medical man, and once its Federal representative, Dr. Millice Culpin will celebrate his 92nd birthday to-morrow, at his home at Taringa. Dr. Millice Culpin was going to school In England when the Crimean War was being fought, when Macaulay was revising the later volume of his famous History of England, when Thackeray was editing 'Cornhill,' and Dickens was writing 'A Tale of Two Cities.' And he was a medical student in London when the late King George was born at Marlborough House. Soon after he qualified as a doctor, he came to Brisbane and made his home at Taringa, when that suburb was dense bush. He was one of Brisbane's early doctors, and is one of the oldest living medical men in the Commonwealth - perhaps the oldest. In the early years of the Federal Parliament he was induced to nominate for Brisbane, and was returned. But the passions of parties and the frenzy of political campaigns did not appeal to him. He preferred his books and his home, and was not sorry when Brisbane found another member. His son is a medical specialist in Brisbane.

    BRISBANE TELEGRAPH: Late Dr. M. Culpin, Queensland's Oldest Medical Man. Dr. Millice Culpin, one-time Member for Brisbane in the House of Representatives, died yesterday at the age of 94. He was the oldest medical man in Queensland, and it is doubtful whether there was an older member of the profession in the Commonwealth.
    The late Dr. Culpin was born and educated in England. He came to Brisbane as a young medical man and settled down at Taringa, in which suburb he had lived ever since, with the exception of the period 1903-1906, which he spent at Melbourne as a member of the Federal Parliament. He was elected as a Labour man when the seat was contested by two Liberals - the late Mr. T. Macdonald Paterson, who was the first representative of Brisbane in that Parliament, and Mr. William Morse, a well-known solicitor. The late Mr. J. F. G. Foxton, a one-time Home Secretary of this State, secured the seat at the following election. The late Dr. Culpin was a great reader and student all his life. He continued in active practice till he was past 70 years of age. He was a keen chess player, and a member of the Rationalist Society. Mrs. Culpin died seven years ago. There survive three daughters - Mesdames Peter Campbell and J. H. Simmonds and Miss D. E. Culpin, B.A.. all of Brisbane - and two sons - Professor Mlllais Culpin, a prominent psychologist, of London, and Dr. Ernest Culpin, of Yernnga. Another son - Private Clarence Howard Culpin was killed in the last war.
