Maurice Geny ( -1906)

1906 Obituary [1]

MAURICE GENY died in April 1906 as the result of an accident which occurred during his visit to St. Nazaire, on the occasion of the launching of the French battleship, the Ernest Renan. He had mounted the platform of an electric turbine when he staggered forward and fell into the pit, fracturing his skull, death being instantaneous. He was a most distinguished engineer, and had been employed at the Le Creusot Works ever since leaving the Paris School of Mines in 1879. He was, at the time of his death, the general manager.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1890.
