1907 Obituary [1]

FREDERICK STUBBS died at West Lee, North Sydney, New South Wales, on September 20, 1906, aged fifty-two, having been born at Quorn, in Nottinghamshire, in 1854. He was educated at Derby Grammar School, and in 1874 he was awarded a Whitworth Scholarship.

In 1877 he entered the laboratory of the Whitworth Company at Manchester, where he remained until 1888, when he was appointed manager of the open-hearth furnaces and steel foundry of Messrs. Thomas Firth & Sons, Limited, Sheffield. He also acted as engineer in the ordnance department of the company.

He was subsequently appointed manager of the Grimesthorpe works of Messrs. Cammell, Laird & Co., Limited, in 1894, but was compelled to resign his position seven years later owing to ill health.

In 1906 he, having somewhat recovered, became one of the partners in the Steel Company of Australia, but, his health again failing, he died within the year.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1881.
