1932 Obituary [1]

HERBERT CLIFFORD DEWS died on January 22, 1932, in Carshalton Hospital following an attack of influenza.

He was born at Wakefield in 1899 and received his metallurgical training at Sheffield University.

After several years as metallurgical chemist to J. Hopkinson & Co., Ltd., he was in 1925 appointed chief metallurgist to Dewrance & Co., which position he held at the time of his death.

He was a Member of Council of, and President of, the London Branch of the Institute of British Foundrymen and recently took over the leadership of the Non-Ferrous Sub-Committee of that Institute. He was also a prominent member of the British Cast-Iron Research Association.

Mr. Dews wrote many papers for technical associations and the Press, and was the author of an exchange paper presented on behalf of the Institute of British Foundrymen to the French Association in 1929. He also wrote a book on "The Metallurgy of Bronze," which has since become a standard work.

Mr. Dews was elected a member of the Institute on March 9, 1921.
