Frederick Sheppard Grimwade was a pharmacist, business entrepreneur, racehorse breeder and parliamentarian. Together he and Alfred Felton developed a business empire which covered pharmaceutical, glass, plastics and chemical manufacturing and helped pioneered these industries in Australia. Grimwade arrived in Melbourne in 1862 to manage Edward Youngman's wholesale drug-house. When Youngman died, Grimwade and Felton bought out the company calling it Felton, Grimwade & Co. This was the start of their remarkable business career and the firm soon became the largest drug-house in Victoria. Of Grimwade's nine children, three played a significant part in developing the Grimwade empire after his death. A fourth son, Alfred Sheppard (1874-1941) became a surgeon and in 1920 joined the family business as director of Australian Oxygen and Industrial Gases Pty Ltd. All five Grimwades contributed greatly to many other aspects of Australian society throughout their lives.
