Frederick Grant (c1890-1954), chairman of the British Iron and Steel Federation


1954 Obituary [1]

WE note with regret the death of Mr. Frederick Grant, which occurred in London on Sunday last, September 19th.

Mr. Grant was particularly well known in the iron and steel industry, and at the time of his death was the independent chairman of the British Iron and Steel Federation's executive committee.

Mr. Grant, who was sixty-four, was born in Dundee, and was educated at Fettes College and at Oxford University. He went straight from Oxford to service in the first world war, and thereafter spent some year~ with the steel firm of Bolckow Vaughan and Co., Ltd.

Mr. Grant was called to the Bar in 1925, and concerned himself mainly with taxation and financial cases. He was a member of the Monopolies and Restrictive Practices Commission from 1 949 to 1952, and in the latter year succeeded the late Sir Andrew Duncan as independent chairman of the British Iron and Steel Federation's executive committee
