    • Arthur was Head Boy at St John's College, Johannesburg. Arthur served in World War 1 in France for 2 years. He started his career as an Advocate in Cape Town and moved to the Johannesburg Bar in 1941. He was appointed a Supreme Court Judge, Transvaal Division in 1953, Judge President of Natal in 1961 and Judge of Appeal in 1962, a post that he held until his death in 1968. He was highly regarded in legal circles. He was always an excellent provider for all his children.
      On 17.12.1926, at age 27, Arthur married Caroline Mitchel Molteno, in Claremont, Cape Town. They were divorced in 1935. He married again: In 1935, at age 35, Arthur married Erna JHF Templin (* 21.10.1902). Caroline was pressed by her powerful uncles to divorce Arthur after his infidelity (with Erna) during her extended trip to Europe alone in the early 1930s. She never remarried.
