Glynn Salter (c1880-1926)


1927 Obituary [1]

GLYNN SALTER died on the 13th October, 1926, aged 46.

He was born at Folkestone, Kent, and was educated at Portsmouth for the Navy.

He gave up this intention and was apprenticed to Messrs. New and Mayne, electrical plant manufacturers. After serving his apprenticeship, he joined the staff of Messrs. Edmundson's Electricity Corporation, Ltd., in whose employ he remained for 20 years. His first engagement with this firm was in connection with the Folkestone electricity supply from 1899 to 1903. He was then transferred to the Lymington electric light undertaking as engineer and manager-secretary, a position which he held until 1910, when he was appointed engineer and manager of the Hamilton (Scotland) electric light undertaking.

That appointment he relinquished in 1920 in order to go out to Tasmania, where he became proprietor of the Retlas Bronze Co. and successfully carried on that business until the time of his death. During his residence in Tasmania he endeared himself very much to those with whom he came in contact, and the reputation achieved by him in his business undertaking was of a high order.

He was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1911 and a Member in 1920.
