Cyril James Inglis (c1893-1958), librarian of the Institution of Civil Engineers

1958 Obituary [1]

We have learned with regret of the death of Mr. Cyril J. Inglis, which occurred on September 29 at the age of sixty-six. He was a former librarian of the Institution of Civil Engineers from which office he retired only a year ago after forty-four years' service. He joined the Institution's staff when the present headquarters building was being erected in Great George Street, Westminster, just before the first world war. After service in that war, Mr. Inglis was appointed assistant librarian and subsequently chief librarian. There are numerous engineers who will recall not only his expert librarianship but also his encyclopaedic memory.
