The President - 1946 - 47

But for the war the election of Professor John Collins as President of the Institution of Structural Engineers would have taken place several sessions ago. For the six years from November 1939 until September 1945 he was out of action as far as the Institution was concerned, being on active service in the wider sphere of the Second World War-and for the second time in his career. For that reason, his name may not be so well known to the younger members of the present generation as it is to their immediate predecessors.
