1945 Obituary [1]

Charles Kingston Everitt was the chairman of Edgar Allen and Co of Imperial Steel Works, Tinsley, Sheffield. He was a pioneer of many metallurgical improvements in the manufacture of high-quality steel and played an important role in introducing the Heroult electric arc steel-melting furnace into this country.

Mr Everitt introduced the high-frequency induction steel melting furnace, which was put into operation at the Imperial Steel Works in 1927, and was at that time one of the first induction type furnaces to be used for the manufacture of high-grade tool steel anywhere in the world.

He was the first President of the Sheffield and District Engineering and Steel Trades Council and also served as President of the Sheffield Society of Engineers and Metallurgists. He was a valued and very popular member of the Iron and Steel Institute.

Mr Everitt died on the 6th February 1945.
