Biographical history

Born in 1887, Edward Francis Nicholson [Frank] Cash graduated from Moore Theological College in 1913 and obtained an M.A. (Honours in Philosophy) from Sydney University in 1922. He was the Rector of Christ Church, North Sydney from 1922 and Registrar of the Australian College of Theology from 1945 to 1961. He and his wife, Violet Elizabeth, donated The John Francis Cash Memorial Chapel to Moore Theological College, completed in 1950. He was a keen amateur photographer and the only one to be permitted onto the construction site of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and took photographs throughout the building process. His photographs also include images of his family: his wife Elizabeth, son John who joined the RAAF and was killed in action in 1941, and three daughters Mary, Miriam and Elizabeth.
