1925 Obituary [1]

JAMES GRAHAM JENKINS died at his residence, Airedale, Cambuslang, on February 9, 1925, at the age of seventy-five.

He was educated in Glasgow, and after leaving the University became business manager to the Ditton Brook Ironworks, Lancashire.

In 1874 he received the appointment of manager of the Iron Mines at Goldames, near Bilbao.

Six years later he returned to Glasgow and joined his father in the iron and steel business. He was among the first to introduce Cumberland ore and Spanish rubio ore into Scotland. He was also identified with the trade in West Cumberland haematite pig iron from the time of the introduction of the open-hearth process into Scotland.

In 1901 he acted as Local Hon. Secretary of the Glasgow Meeting of the Institute, and contributed greatly to making the meeting a brilliant success.

He was an original member of the West of Scotland Iron and Steel Institute, and was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1872.
