Isaac Vincent Robinson (c1879-1959) of BEAMA

1959 Obituary [1]

WE have learned with regret of the death of Mr. Isaac Vincent Robinson, which occurred at his home at Walton-on-Thames on April 16. Mr. Robinson, who was eighty, will be remembered by many engineers for his work as head of the power plant department of the British Electrical and Allied Manufacturers Association. He joined BEAMA in 1919 and continued actively in its affairs until his retirement only four years ago.

Mr. Robinson received his early engineering training at the Central Marine Engine Works, West Hartlepool, studied subsequently at the Royal College of Science, and thereafter spent several years in the steam turbine department of Richardsons, Westgarth and Co., Ltd.

Mr. Robinson was a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. He was also a Whitworth Exhibitioner and served as president of the Whitworth Society in 1948.
