Murray Barclay Buxton President of the Institution of Structural Engineers

FIVE months ago, we published on this page some biographical notes regarding our newly elected President, Captain M. B. Buxton. The particulars from which the notes were written were naturally obtained from the President himself, and it is typical of him that some of the most interesting aspects of his life and career were omitted. Murray Buxton was one of four brothers; one was killed in the last war, another, Alfred Barclay Buxton, was with his brother on that last evening and met the same death. The only surviving brother is Captain Godfrey Buxton, who, in the course of an oration at the graveside of his brothers, revealed facts of which even those of us who knew-or thought we knew-Murray Buxton very well, had been quite unaware.
