1935 Obituary [1]

FREDERICK FORRESTER HUNTING died at his home in Cardiff on April 27, 1935; he was sixty-two years of age.

It was in 1923 that Mr. Hunting went to Cardiff from the Midlands to take over the management of the Cardiff Works of Messrs. Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds, Ltd., and he continued to hold that position until the amalgamation of the heavy-steel interests in South Wales of Messrs. Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds, Ltd., and Messrs. Baldwins, Ltd., when, with the closing-down of the Cardiff steelworks, he was appointed chief metallurgist to the British (Guest, Keen, Baldwins) Iron and Steel Co, Ltd.

He joined the Iron and Steel Institute in 1917, to which, in collaboration with Mr. W. J. Brooke, he presented a note on " The microstructure of commercially pure iron between Ar8 and Ar2." Mr. Hunting was, at the time of his death, a member of the Corrosion Committee of the Iron and Steel Institute and the British Iron and Steel Federation.
