Maurice E. Unwin (1876-1930), director and works manager of John Brown and Co
1930 Obituary 
MAURICE E. UNWIN, M.Inst.C.E., the younger son of the late F. Philip Unwin and nephew of Dr. W. Cawthorne Unwin, died suddenly on April 25, 1930, at the age of fifty-four.
Born at Bradford in 1876, he was educated at Giggleswick.
He then entered the service of John Brown & Co., Ltd., in 1898, becoming later the manager of the armour-plate department. In 1919 he was appointed a local director of the company, and ultimately became works manager. He was in full charge of the armour department at the Atlas Works before and during the war, and his knowledge of the very difficult technique of the manufacture of armour was probably unique.
He was a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers, and took a keen interest in Sheffield University.
He was elected to membership of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1905.
