1943 Obituary [1]

CLARENCE JOHN INDER was born in New Zealand and educated at Otago University. After serving his apprenticeship with the New Zealand Engineering and Electrical Company, Dunedin, from 1897 to 1899, he came to England and for brief periods occupied positions as assistant manager of Messrs. George Green's Works at Aberystwyth, assistant engineer to Mr. F. J. Warden-Stevens, and engineer to the Duff Syndicate, London and Straits Settlements, a firm engaged on mining operations, in which branch of engineering he continued to be interested throughout his professional career.

In 1903 he began to practice as a consulting engineer, specializing in the development of alluvial mines, and a year later entered into partnership with the late Mr. D. D. Henderson, with whom he was associated for many years. His interests took him to many parts of the world, including countries as far apart as Russia, West Africa, British Guiana, and Alaska. During the present war he joined an engineering firm in Yorkshire engaged on the production of munitions.

Mr. Inder, whose death occurred on 9th December 1942, was an Associate Member of the Institution for forty years, having been elected in 1902.
