The first full-time engineering course at Bolton started in 1958. By the early 1960s the beginnings of the present School had received full recognition of its comes by the then Council of Engineering Institutions. The School now has 34 academic staff, 18 support staff and over 950 full and part-time students, working within an
Institute which has the mission ‘to be widely recognised for the accessibility and responsive ness of its services and for its commitment to high quality teaching, learning and research’.

This lecture series, previously named the Star History series, derives from an initiative by Keith White when he was President. He felt that at least some of the activities of the Institution’s History Study Group should reach an audience wider than the Group’s membership. It is perhaps even more appropriate this year to remember who suggested the Study Group. This was Dr George Geddes when he was President in 1971-2. Sadly, George Geddes died last November. Although the History Study Group may seem a small item among his many considerable achievements, I think it is fitting to remember him this evening. Effectively, this lecture series is his ‘grandchild'.
Mr I.P. Gillson (M) (Central Electricity Generating Board): I draw the attention of specifying engineers to the need to
-study carefully the September 1983 draft ‘Guidance notes’ when dealing with particularly vulnerable structures
-consider the relevance of tests on mortar prisms and cubes to the risk of ASR damage
-consider the scale effects of concrete samples on the risk of ASR damage
-examine evidence from concrete that has been damaged by ASR
