Presidential Address. The Contractor's Place

I am very conscious of the great honour that you have accorded me in installing me as President of the Institution of Structural Engineers for the year 79-80. Many distinguished men have preceded me in this office in the 71 years' history of the Institution and, if l cannot match the oratory of some of my recent predecessors, I shall at least try to keep any shortcoming as inconspicuous as possible. J.A. Derrington
