About this object

Arthur Eames Budd, M.L.A. was the member for the electorate of Byron in the NSW Legislative Assembly from 1927 to 1944. His term representing the people of the Tweed at the state level saw some important improvements to life in the Tweed including the building of the new Tweed District Hospital (Murwillumbah) which he officially opened in August 1939.

Byron was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in New South Wales created in 1913, replacing Rous, and named after Cape Byron. With the introduction of proportional representation in 1920, Byron absorbed Lismore and Clarence and elected three members. With the end of proportional representation in 1927, it was redivided into the single-member electorates of Byron, Lismore and Clarence. In 1988 Byron was replaced by Ballina and Murwillumbah.

Arthur was also Alderman of Murwillumbah Municipal Council from 1904 to 1908 and from 1920 to 1927. He served as Mayor 1922 - 1927.

Arthur married Annie Knight (daughter of early pioneers Mr & Mrs James Knight). They had 10 children and one adopted daughter.
