1st Oleg Kerensky Memorial Conference. Speeches Delivered at the Conference Banquet Held at Guildhall, City of London, on 21 June 1988

Mr K. C. White (President, Institution of Structural Engineers): Your Royal Highness, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen: I started to put these words together during a break while attending the 13th IABSE Congress held in Helsinki some 2 weeks ago. The theme of that Congress, and one that Oleg Kerensky would greatly have enjoyed debating, was ‘Challenges to structural engineering’. Session subjects like the ‘Application of advanced materials’, ’Structural repairs under exceptional circumstances’, and ‘Long-span structures’, would have been almost self-indulgence to him.
