    Link to Google MapsNewspaper Report - HERTS & CAMBS REPORTER & ROYSTON CROW: LECTURE ON AUSTRALIA BY DR M CULPIN. Last week a lecture was given on Australia by Dr M Culpin in the Congregational School-room, when the chair was taken by the Rev G Fraser Elliott. There was a good attendance, many of the inhabitants wishing to welcome such a distinguished man as Dr Culpin, who is a native of Buntingford, and has achieved success by those sterling qualities that always assert themselves in self-made men. His father was a currier in Buntingford, and eventually the son followed the same occupation at Ware. This work, however, did not deter him from the resolution he had formed on becoming a doctor. He walked the London Hospital for four years, perhaps the four most strenuous years of his life, eventually taking his medical degree, both at London and Edinburgh. For some years he had a practice at Stamford Hill, and about fifteen years ago he emigrated to Brisbane. Here two of his sons have achieved success as doctors, and Dr Culpin himself has been elected a member of the Federal Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia. He is a keen debater, and on the subject of finance is looked upon as an authority. The lecture was listed to with rapt attention, many present having relatives in Australia, asking questions referring to the southern continent, which were clearly answered by Dr Culpin, who showed that though Australia was a self-governing community it could not make treaties or declare war, but was politically connected with Great Britain. He received a hearty vote of thanks at the close, passed by acclamation. To-day (Friday) he starts on his return voyage to Australia. - 20 Apr 1906 - Buntingford, Herts Link to Google Earth

    Link to Google MapsNewspaper Report - THE COURIER-MAIL: Dr Millice Culpin, Queensland's and probably Australia's oldest doctor, and one-time Federal member for Brisbane, died in Brisbane yesterday in his 95th year. He had been in ill-health for some time, but continued to take a keen interest in current events. A native of England, he was educated at Alleynes Grammar School, Stevenage, starting school just three months before the Crimean War broke out. Coming to Brisbane more than 60 years ago, soon after he had qualified as a doctor, he made his home in Taringa, when that suburb was heavy bush. Of scholarly disposition, the late Dr Culpin was keenly devoted to his work, and, except for a trip to England many years ago, he never took a holiday. He retired from active practice 21 years ago. He did not seek active participation in public life, and it was only his keen sense of duty that led him to accept nomination for the Federal Parliament to which he was elected in 1903. He probably welcomed the opportunity of relinquishing Parliamentary life which came with defeat in 1906. Chess was one of his pastimes. He was a steadfast member of the Rationalist Society of Queensland. He is survived by two sons and three daughters - Professor Millais Culpin, noted psychologist, practising in London, and Dr E Culpin, of Brisbane; and Mesdames Peter Campbell and J H Simmonds and Miss D E Culpin, BA, of Brisbane. One son, Private Clarence Howard Culpin, was killed in action in the last war. Dr Culpin's wife died in 1934. The funeral will leave his late residence, Stanley Terrace, Taringa, this afternoon for the Toowong Cemetery. - 2 Sep 1941 - Brisbane, Queensland, Australia Link to Google Earth
