JAMES CLARK DICKINSON was born at Sunderland on 31st January 1860, and was educated at local schools.

He served an apprenticeship from 1877 to 1884 in the Palmer's Hill Engine Works, Sunderland, of his father, the late Mr. John Dickinson (of whom, as a Member of this Institution, a memoir was given in the Proceedings 1908, page 786), after which he was promoted to positions of responsibility and trust in those works.

Later on, the firm was converted into a limited company under the title "John Dickinson and Sons, Limited," and with this business the subject of this memoir remained closely interested as a director up to the time of his death, which occurred on 7th April 1925.

He became a Member of this Institution in 1891.
