1953 Obituary [1]

HARRY STANLEY LEE, whose death occurred on 9th January 1952 at the age of fifty-four, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1939. He was educated at Battersea Grammar School and Battersea and Regent Street Polytechnics, London.

After serving apprenticeships with James Slater and Company, Ltd., and Mr. James Wilson, London, he enlisted in the Royal Engineers in 1916 and saw service in France and on the Salonika front.

Shortly after his return to civil life he found employment in London as draughtsman and designer to the Projectile and Engineering Company, Ltd., but left this firm in 1922 to take up the appointment of chief draughtsman to the Fuller Lehigh Company.

Later he was engaged as resident engineer and was closely concerned with the erection and operation of pulverized-fuel equipment.

He then began a connexion with Babcock and Wilcox, Ltd., London, boiler makers, which lasted for sixteen years. During this period he was at first engaged as a designer, but after a year's experience he carried out the duties of combustion and testing engineer, which took him to all parts of the world.

In 1940 he was appointed manager of the Turf Development Board, Ltd., Eire, peat briquette works; later he was works engineer with the British Coal Utilisation Research Association; and, in 1945, he joined the engineering staff of Courtaulds, Ltd., Coventry.
