Arthur Ernest Baldwin (1854-1902)

1903 Obituary [1]

ARTHUR ERNEST BALDWIN, son of the late John Baldwin, was born at Warwick on the 1st January, 1854.

After being educated at King’s College, London, of which he became an Associate, obtaining the Freake Engineering Prize, he served a pupilage of four years under his father, who was at that time engaged as Contractor’s Engineer on the construction of the Sharpness Docks on the Severn.

On the completion of those works, the subject of this notice was employed on the construction of the Glaston Tunnel on the Kettering and Manton Railway, under the late W. H. Barlow, Past-President. This was a heavy and important piece of work, claiming continual attention and watchfulness.

For some months in 1879 he was engaged as an Assistant Electrician at [Siemens Brothers and Co|Messrs. Siemens]]’ works at Charlton during the construction of the French Atlantic cable, and from July of that year he was employed on the construction of the new docks at Milford.

His next appointment was that of Contractor’s Agent for the late firm of S. Lake and Taylor, who then took over the dock works. Subsequently he became Consulting Agent and Engineer to the firm, all works in their hands being placed under his direction. He resigned that post to become Engineer to the Milford Haven Railway, and later Manager and Engineer to the Milford Haven Estate and Railway, which appointment he held until his father’s death in 1891, when he retired from professional work. . . .
