Christopher Clarke Hutchinson (1854-1914)

1914 Obituary [1]

CHRISTOPHER CLARKE HUTCHINSON, K.C., born in 1854, obtained his engineering training with Messrs. Fairbairn, Kennedy and Naylor, of Leeds, and in 1880 became technical partner in the firm of S. H. Johnson and Company, mechanical and chemical engineers, of Stratford. For 16 years he was actively associated with the design and construction of sewage-disposal plant, air-compressors and chemical machinery generally.

In 1896 he gave up engineering pursuits in favour of the law, being called to the Bar at the Middle Temple in that year. He quickly became a prominent member of the Parliamentary Bar, where his scientific training proved of great service, and was made a King’s Counsel in 1910.

He died at South Kensington on the 7th March, 1914.

Mr. Hutchinson was elected a Member of The Institution on the 12th January, 1897.
