Cecil Harold Hoskins ( -1926)

1926 Obituary [1]

CECIL HAROLD HOSKINS died in April 1926.

He was born in London, but emigrated when quite young with his parents to Australia. At the age of twenty-five he started an engineering business in Sydney in company with his two brothers, taking up the manufacture of engines, boilers, and steel water-pipes.

In 1908 he took over the Lithgow Ironworks, the most important works manufacturing iron and steel in Australia at that time, which underwent great developments under the direction of Mr. Hoskins and one brother.

In 1919 Mr. C. H. Hoskins bought up the whole of his brother's interest, becoming the sole proprietor of the business.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1920.
