The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) - Sat 26 Jun 1954 - Page 5 - Cr. Campbell— "able, selfless" https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/23428574 Cr. Campbell -"able, selfless" CR ROBERT BURNS CAMPBELL, chairman of the City Council public works committee, who died suddenly yesterday (see Page 1), was mainly responsible for the Council's decision to construct the Degraves street subway. Cr Solly, Lord Mayor, said last night: "We have lost one of our most hard-working and able men. He was selfless in his service to the city." Cr Campbell was educated at Melbourne Grammar School, and studied dentistry at Melbourne University. He was for many years an honorary on the dental staff of the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He was elected member for Gipps Ward in 1944, and was re-elected last year. He was council representative on the Municipal Association of Victoria and the advisory council of the Emily Mc-pherson College of Domestic Economy. He is survived by his wife and three daughters. The funeral will take place at Spring Vale Crematorium on Tuesday afternoon after a service beginning at 1.45 pm, at Sleight's, St Kilda rd. Cr. Campbell's death is almost certain to cause an extraordinary by-election in Gipps Ward. City Council officers Cr. Campbell said last night that as his death took place two months and one day before the annual election of councillors, it would probably mean a by-election would be held before the elections on August 26.
