C. J. Sutherland (c1872-1905)

1905 Obituary [1]

C. J. SUTHERLAND died on January 20, 1905, in his 34th year.

Mr. Sutherland received his training at Faraday House, and from the commencement of his professional life he was associated with central station work.

After filling several posts, he was appointed electrical engineer to Hanley Corporation in 1895, and here he was responsible for the large extension of the undertaking during the following three years.

In 1898 he was appointed to Worcester, where he designed a large combined lighting and traction station which was completed in 1902. It was after coming to Worcester that signs of ill-health began to manifest themselves, and early in 1900 Mr. Sutherland was granted twelve months' leave of absence.

He resumed his duties in 1901, but a recurrence of his illness necessitated his resignation shortly before his death.

Mr. Sutherland was elected a Member of the Institution in 1902.
