William Malham (c1881-1951)

1951 Obituary [1]

"WILLIAM MALHAM was an expert in carriage and motor body building having spent the whole of his professional career in that industry.

He received his technical education at the City and Guilds of London College where he gained the first prize and silver medal for his work in the technique of body building. After five years' practical training in his father's body building business in London, he was appointed manager in 1900. On the amalgamation of the firm with Messrs. Liversidge and Sons, Ltd., in 1906, he was made salesman and assistant to the works manager, his duties including design, costs and estimates.

In 1915 he joined H.M. Forces and served in France in the motor transport shops of the R.A.S.C. On demobilization in 1919 he returned to Messrs. Liversidge and remained with them in his former position until the closing down of the firm in 1928. Since that date he had held the appointment of body works manager to Messrs. S. Scammell and later with Bonallack and Sons.

Mr. Malliam, whose death occurred on 6th February 1951 at the age of seventy, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution of Automobile Engineers in 1930. He had been an instructor in subjects connected with his industry, to technical institutes of the London County Council."
