FRANK ARBUTHNOTT 1911 - 1957

Frank Arbuthnott was a masterful pianist and violinist with a natural flair for teaching. He instilled in students a sound appreciation for music and encouraged them to develop their personal talents and skills. During the 11 years Frank lived in Donnybrook he did much to enrich the cultural life of the district. He died unexpectedly on 23 August 1957, just short of his 46th birthday. The local community established the Scholarship as a way to recognise his contribution to their cultural development while at the same time assisting future artistically talented young people from the district.
