Obituary in The Pauline:

A.E.H. Cooper … took a keen interest in every branch of College life, and did much to foster that true College spirit which is becoming rarer and more precious with the flight of years. In 1916, after passing the special War Finals in August, he enlisted in the Infantry, and left Australia in November with the rank of sergeant, later being promoted on the field to lieutenant. He was killed in action in France on June 16th, 1917. A man of high mental ability and strikingly original literary talent, reserved yet fearless, possessed of a generous, lovable and sympathetic nature, he won his way to the hearts of all who were privileged to know him.
