dc.description.abstractOn 14 December 1937 the front page of the Australian daily newspaper The Telegraph featured the following headline: PRIEST DIES ON SHIP IN BRISBANE. There followed the information that sixty-year-old Father Otto Meyer MSC had died in his cabin on board the liner Nellore at 6 a.m. that morning. He had just spent two months leave in Sydney and was on his way back to Watom Island in the Bismarck Archipelago, where he had been active as a Missionary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the past 35 years. According to the reporter, he was beloved by all who came into contact with him, Europeans and natives alike. Father Meyer was buried in Nudgee Catholic Cemetery in Brisbane, where his headstone can still be seen today.
