Sutherland History Lecture. Active Engineering History

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'. R.J.M. Sutherland
