Professor C. A. Geneve ( -1970)

1970 Obituary [1]

Professor C. A. Geneve (Fellow), who died on 20th June, spent twenty-five years at the academic institution that ultimately became Cairo University. As Professor of Mechanical Engineering there, his services included the equipment of new laboratories, the development of new courses, and the inspiration of more than a generation of students, some of whom reached responsible positions in the growing number of industrial establishments in Egypt.

He was the Chairman of the Institution's Egyptian Advisory Committee. Upon returning to London he became a valued servant of BSI.

His influence among colleagues and students was enormous. A well-liked and respected man, his death is a loss to the profession.
