SIR,-In reference to Dr. Fordham’s most interesting paper, published in The Structural
Engineer for May, 1938, may I be permitted to add a few supplementary notes ?
The newly-elected President of the Institution, Lt.-Colonel H. S. Rogers, C.M.G., D.S.O, Chevalier of the Legion of Honour, France, is a Canadian and was born at Peterborough, Ontario, in 1869. Educated at the Royal Military College, Kingston, Canada, he graduated in 1889 winning, amongst other prizes, that for Civil Engineering, the Stanley Sword for the highest aggregate in Military Subjects and the Governor-General’s Gold Medal for general proficiency, the latter gaining him the only commission in the Royal Engineers granted to Canada that year.
THE PRESIDENT (Professor J. Husband, F.R,.C.Sc.T., M.Inst.C.E.), in calling upon Dr. Agatz to present his paper, said it was a very happy coincidence that the Institution was able to welcome a great engineering authority from Berlin so soon after British engineers had visited Germany in order to see the wonderful German autobahnen.
