1944 Obituary [1]

ARTHUR BRAMWELL, whose death in his sixty-first year occurred in the United States on 15th June 1943, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1920. He received his technical education at Manchester Technical School and served his apprenticeship with Messrs. J. Chadwick, Son and Clarke, Ltd., of Salford, from 1898 to 1902. After gaining further experience in mechanical engineering from 1902 to 1908 with various firms in the Manchester district, including the British Westinghouse Company, Ltd., he joined Messrs. Barber and Colman, Ltd., Brooklands, makers of the patent "Barber knotter", and remained in the service of that firm until 1915 when he entered the Admiralty and was employed as mechanical draughtsman with subsequent promotion to the post of chief draughtsman in the inspectorate.

In 1928 he went to America to take up a temporary appointment with the Washburn Wire Company, by whom he was engaged on the design of a copper rolling mill and electrically driven continuous wiredrawing machinery. In the following year he transferred his services to the Potter and Johnston Machine Company, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where he was employed for the remaining fourteen years of his career on the design of automatic turret lathes.
