Edmund "Eddy" Walter was born in 1900, the son of Robert Walter and Ellen.  He grew up in Howlong, a small town on the Murray River in New South Wales. He was the eldest child in his family. When he finished school he got a job working for the postal service and he worked as a public servant all his life. Initially he had a job in Henty. Later he moved to Sydney, where he married Dorothy Collis in 1927. 
Edmund loved sports. He played Australian Rules Football and Cricket as a young man, and continued to play Cricket until he was too old to enjoy it any more and then he took up lawn bowls. He also took great pride in his garden, which was admired throughout the district.
Edmund had a great interest in history, and worked for many years curating the history of the Postal Service. In his later years, he took on to research his family history, and travelled to England, Barbados and South Carolina on his quest.
Edmund moved from his home in Lane Cove to a unit in Hornsby after his wife passed away. He died in 1992 and was cremated at Northern Suburbs Crematorium.
