      Among the many personalities who made a distinct impression on the history of the Wondai district was Allan Max Behm, deputy chairman of the Wondai Shire Council and a director of the Maryborough Co-operative Dairy Association. Allan Behm, in addition to his extensive farming interests in the Wondai district which included that of a stud and commercial pig breeder, was extremely active in public affairs and was involved in many local community bodies. He died at the Brisbane General Hospital on Friday, 22 July 1967, after being involved in a car accident while returning home in a utility loaded with cement. The funeral, which took place at Wondai the following Monday, was reported to have been the largest ever seen in the town.1
