Arthur Henry Wilson (c1853-1924)
"The Late Mr. Arthur Henry Wilson.—We regret to have to announce the death, in his 71st year, of Mr. Arthur Henry Wilson, of Sandridge Park, Totnes. Mr. Wilson had been an associate member of the Institution of Civil Engineers since February, 1879. He studied from January, 1874, to June, 1875, at the Crystal Palace School of Engineering, and served from August, 1875, to March, 1877, as a pupil under Mr. F. E. Townsend, on the Abersychan branch of the London and North Western Railway, on which very heavy work was being carried out at the time. During the remainder of 1877 Mr. Wilson was assistant resident engineer for Mr. Gardner on the same line, and had to superintend and set out station buildings. Later he was appointed engineer on the Batley and Dewsbury line of the Great Northern Railway for Messrs. Baker and Firbank. Mr. Wilson had continued his railway engineering activities until quite recently."
