1943 Obituary 
Mr. Paul Henry Kohn-Speyer, Chairman of Brandeis Goldschmidt and Company, Ltd., died on October 20, 1942. Whilst himself not a technical man, Mr. Kohn-Speyer had an intimate knowledge of the metal markets and was considered to be the leading authority on the copper market.
He joined the firm of Brandeis Goldschmidt and Company as partner in 1894 and gradually enlarged the scope of the firm, which had been a founder member of the London Metal Exchange, into a business of world-wide importance.
At the close of the 1914-1918 war, Mr. Kohn- Speyer assisted the British Government in the disposal of large quantities of scrap metal. The policy of assisting smaller firms and of supporting the London Metal Exchange was one to which he devoted himself throughout his life. Mr. Kohn-Speyer was widely known in the City, and the reports on the non-ferrous metal markets which his firm issued regularly were highly regarded.
Mr. Kohn-Speyer was elected a member of the Institute of Metals in 1922.
