James Macallum Cherrie ( -1900)

1900 Obituary [1]

JAMES MACALLUM CHERRIE died suddenly at his residence, Clutha Cottage, Tollcross, near Glasgow, on March 9, 1900.

He commenced his business career in the office of the Blochairn Steelworks, Glasgow, and later entered the service of Messrs. Beardmore at the Parkhead Forge. A few years, later he was appointed general commercial manager of that firm, which position he held until 1887.

In that year he began business for himself as an iron and steel merchant, which he carried on successfully for some time; but he was less fortunate during later years. He was a member of the Glasgow Philosophical Society for many years, and was well known and greatly respected in Glasgow business circles.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1883.
