Arthur J Moxham (1854-1931)

Born in Neath, South Wales.

After the death of his father, Egbert Moxham, Arthur left Neath for the USA, to live with his aunt, Dora Coleman (nee Morgan) in Louisville. She was the wife of Thomas C. Coleman Sr., M.D. of the Louisville Rolling Mill Co. Arthur was employed at the mill, and by 1877 had become Assistant Superintendent. Later, he became a prominent figure in the US steelmaking industry. Read much more about Moxham's life and work in the 'Johnson Steel Street Rail Company'[1]

Moxham moved on to the Dupont company, where he played a vital role in changing it from a 'loosely-organized explosives firm into an integrated chemical corporation.'[2]
