1904 Obituary [1]

A. LE NEVE FOSTER died very suddenly on June 7, 1904, at his residence in London.

In his early career he was associated with the Indian Rubber, Gutta-Percha, and Telegraph Works Company, and on leaving their service he accepted an appointment with the firm of Davis & Timmins at a time when the electrical industry was comparatively in its infancy. As managing director of the latter firm, and in other capacities as an electrical engineer, Mr. Le Neve Foster was frequently in touch with the electrical profession generally.

He was elected an Associate in 1873, and was transferred to the class of Members in 1876.
