"Romance of Silica"

Readers of The Structural Engineer will be pleased to learn how much interest and attention the very able address by Mr. E. F. Sargeant, to the Yorkshire Branch of the Institution, last year, has attracted. Mr. Sargeant, as Chairman of that Branch, chose as his subject “The Romance of Silica,” and dealt with it in a particularly fascinating manner, as may be judged from the text of his address, which was published in The Structurcrl Engineer for June last. It was, in December, made the subject of an article on the “leader” page of The Times, and we understand that Mr. Sargeant likewise received a highly congratulatory letter from Sir Robert Hadfield in the course of which Sir Robert commented on the amount of time that must have been involved in writing so instructive a paper, which interested him the more in so far as he had himself evolved and invented silicon steel, and expressed his high appreciation of Mr.Sargeant’s own “fascinating and instructive paper.”
