Mr. Archibald Henderson, M.I.C.E., of Cults, Aberdeenshire, who was elected to Membership of the Institution in 1942, died in a nursing home on the 6th April, 1947. Mr. Henderson had wide experience and was responsible for the design of a large ore storage pier in Spain and several harbour works in this country. Later he became resident engineer on the construction of harbour developments in Brazil costing £6,000,000. One of his largest war-time jobs as a consulting engineer was the reconstruction of Princes Pier, Greenock.
When the Author was invited to read this Paper before the Western Counties Branch of the Institution of Structural Engineers, it was suggested that the approach to the subject should be carefully planned. It was felt that it should appeal to those members of the branch who were unfamiliar with the methods outlined, to others who wished to know more about its application and to the graduate and student members.
Frederick Sidney Snow was born on the 14th February, 1899, and at 48 he must be considered among the younger of those who have held the office of President of the Institution of Structural Engineers. There is much in him which appeals to the young,
with whom he has always been popular-his ready sympathy, his forthrightness and his impatience of the too rigidly conventional methods of approach. He likes to get things done; and quickly. In one respect, however, he must be classed with the older generation, for in his youth he went through that searing experience which even now separates those who were in it from those who were not. At 15 3/4, on the commencement
the-first World War, Frederick Snow joined the Royal Artillery. He later served with the Royal Engineers and saw active service in France and Belgium, where he was twice wounded.
