"RUDOLPH SELZ, who was born in 1876, gained his experience in the manufacture of marine engines and motor cars at the Vauxhall Ironworks from 1900 to 1907. He then went into practice as a consulting engineer and continued in that work until 1916 when he joined H.M. Forces and served in the ranks of the Royal Engineers with the British Expeditionary Force until his demobilization in 1919. After two years with the Dunlop Rubber Company, Ltd., he went to Germany, where he was concerned with the manufacture of motor cycles. Subsequently he found employment at the Maffei Locomotive works in that country. His final position, which dated from 1937 until his death, was at the Loewy Engineering Co, London.
