1891 Obituary [1]

ROBERT GEORGE TOSH was the son of Mr. George Tosh, manager of the North Lincolnshire Ironworks, near Doncaster. He went through the usual course of the Royal School of Mines, in chemistry, metallurgy, and mineralogy, and afterwards, for a period of ten years, acted as chemist and assistant manager to his father at the works of the North Lincolnshire Iron Company.

In January of the present year (1891) he left this country for the United States, with the intention of settling down in the newly-developed iron district of the South. In July he was attacked by typhoid, and after a few days' illness died at Middlesbro, Kentucky, at the early age of thirty-one.

He became a member of the Institute in 1881.
