James P. Witherow ( -1904)


1904 Obituary [1]

JAMES P. WITHEROW died on March 13, 1904, at Pittsburg, after a short illness. He was well known in America as an engineer, and under the name of Witherow & Gordon carried on a blast-furnace engineering business. He also managed large foundry and machine shops in Newcastle. He was an authority on questions of blast-furnace practice, and contributed numerous papers upon this and other subjects to the American Institute of Mining Engineers—notably on the Clapp-Griffiths process, and on the manufacture of steel in small converters.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1884.
