Werner Morell (1899-1932)


1932 Obituary [1]

DR.-ING WERNER MORELL died, after a short illness, on January 18, 1932, at the age of 32.

He was born on June 8, 1899, at Halle an der Saale, and received his education in Halle and Berlin. He read jurisprudence and economics at the University of Berlin and subsequently in 1920 he studied the metallurgy of non-ferrous metals and metallography at the Technical High School of the same town. He took his degree of Dipl.-Ing. on April 8, 1926.

In June 1925 he became Research Assistant at the Kaiser-Wilhelm- Institut fur Metallforschung, Berlin-Dahlem, and in 1928 manager of the corrosion laboratory of that Institute. Together with Professor Dr.-Ing.E.h. O. Bauer, he carried out a comprehensive investigation of the corrosion of aluminium and its light alloys and was occupied with a critical review of all previous work on this subject. Unfortunately, he did not live to see the fruit of his labours. On September 1, 1931, he entered the Abteilung fur Metallographie of the Staatliches Materialprufungsamt, Berlin-Dahlem.

After his death the faculty of Maschinenwesen of the Technical High School of Berlin conferred upon him the degree of Dr.-Ing. in recognition of a dissertation on "The Qualification of the Tensile Test as a Method of Valuation of Corrosion Experiments and the Importance of this Method in Practice," which he had delivered in 1931.

Apart from his scientific work, he will be remembered as a very kind-hearted man, who was always ready to help others. Dr.-Ing Morell was elected a Member of the Institute of Metals on November 7, 1929. (M. HANSEN.)
