Arthur Loft Dossor (1843-1881)

1882 Obituary [1]

ARTHUR LOFT DOSSOR, son of Mr. James Dossor, surgeon, of Hull, was born there on 4th July 1843.

After receiving his preliminary education at Wesley College, Sheffield, and subsequently at Darmstadt, he was apprenticed to the firm of Martin Samuelson and Co., iron shipbuilders and engineers, Hull, with whom he remained for a term of six years.

He afterwards went to London, where he was engaged by Messrs. Fothergill and Samuelson, consulting engineers, for two or three years.

Subsequently he became the London representative of Messrs. Wheatley Kirk Price and Goulty, consulting engineers &c., of Manchester and London.

In the autumn of 1880, on account of failing health, he went to Lisbon for a three months' rest, hoping that the climate, which had previously done him good, would again restore him to strength. This expectation was not realised, and he died there on 11th February 1881, in the thirty-eighth year of his age.

He became a Member of the Institution in 1877.
