The obituary for the second half of 1907 includes the name of LORD KELVIN, the scientist of world-wide fame, who on numerous occasions honoured the Institute by his presence at meetings and social functions; as well as the names of ALFRED BACHE, secretary of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (1884-1898), and of MARTIN WALTON BROWN, secretary of the Institution of Mining Engineers. These two gentlemen rendered invaluable aid in furthering the work of the Iron and Steel Institute. Mr. Walton Brown acted as honorary local secretary, and arranged the Newcastle-on-Tyne excursion on the occasion of the visit of American engineers organised by the Iron and Steel Institute in 1906.
