most notable citizens and benefactors.
Phillimy was in his eighty-fifth year.
lege at Ballarat, and from 1871 to
1877 was clerk in Burgoyne's grocery
establishment. In the latter year he
entered into partnership with a Mr.
till 1882, when he assumed full control.
In the following year he took his
brother Into partnership, and the name
McPhillimy Bros, has remained in
many directions since. Mr. McPhil-
limy came to Geelong in 1883, and
purchased a small confectionery busi-
ness. He and his brother carried on
and expanded the business. Although
many years ago, the trade name is
still applied to articles of confec-
tionary. Mr. McPhillimy was best
known for his interest in art, his
liberality towards the Presbyterian
church and schools, and his benefac-
tions to all causes of a worthy nature.
In his travels over seas he acquired
many art treasures, and many of these
were presented to the Geelong art gal-
lery.
