Claude Greener Cadman (1878-1947)

1949 Obituary [1]

"CLAUDE GREENER CADMAN spent almost the whole of his professional career in the Far East, where for many years he was in the service of the Post and Telegraph Department of the Straits Settlements and Federated Malay States, finally rising to the position of engineer-in-chief.

He was born in 1878 and received his general education at Kent College, Canterbury. His technical training was obtained at the Royal Technical College, Salford, and at the City and Guilds College, South Kensington. After serving his apprenticeship at the General Electric Company's Peel Works, Salford, from 1895 to 1899, he was employed during the next three years as installation manager for power, light, and telephone plants.

He then began his career in the Far East with the post of inspector of mechanical and electrical signalling on the Perak State Railways. Six years later he became chief telegraph engineer in the Post and Telegraph Department of the F.M.S., a position he filled until 1926 when he received his final appointment as engineer-in-chief. His retirement dated from 1932. Mr. Cadman, whose death occurred on 22nd October 1947, was elected an Associate of the Institution in 1921, and was transferred to Companionship in 1922 and to Membership in 1928. He was also a Member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers."
