Albert Augustus Dangar

and Mary Phoebe Dangar 

Mr and Mrs A A Dangar, 1907. From The Souvenir of the Opening at Singleton of the Dangar Cottage Hospital from the Glass/Morrison collection, University of Newcastle, Cultural Collections.

Albert was the fourth son of the surveyor, Henry Dangar, born on the Neotsfield property near Singleton. He remained in the pastoral business inherited from his father, and managed many properties with his brothers. Albert and his wife Phoebe (married on 11 September 1866) were known for their philanthropy, especially in Singleton. They generously donated the land and money for the building of Dangar Cottage Hospital in Singleton, opened in 1907. They also helped fund the rebuilding of the All Saints church in 1911 (below). These two buildings remain standing in Singleton today.
