1901 Obituary [1]

HERBERT HENRY GRAHAME DUNLOP, born on the 28th December, 1861, was the son of an officer of the Indian Army who served through the Mutiny.

After being educated at Shrewsbury School, the subject of this notice served a pupilage in the fitting and erecting shops of Messrs. Thomson, Thomson and Co., marine engineers, of Glasgow.

From 1877 to 1882 he served a further pupilage to Messrs. Law and Chatterton, of Westminster, by whom he was employed on the Stonehouse Lake Sewerage scheme at Plymouth, on important bridge works in Wales, on a survey of the Thames Estuary, including tidal and current observations, and on other important works.

In 1882 Mr. Dunlop was appointed an Assistant Engineer on the Southern Mahratta Railway, in the Bombay Presidency, the construction of which had just been commenced. He remained on construction works until their completion, when he was transferred to the open line establishment.

In 1890 he was promoted from Assistant Engineer to District Engineer. With the exception of a short period in 1899, when he acted as the Chief Engineer during the latter's absence on leave, he continued to fulfil the duties of a District Engineer until his death, which occurred suddenly at Poona on the 28th July, 1900.

Mr. Dunlop was elected an Associate Member of the Institution on the 6th December, 1887.
