Frederic Atkinson (c1863-1941)
1942 Obituary 
FREDERIC ATKINSON whose death at the age of seventy-three years occurred on 24th July 1941, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1896, and was transferred to Membership in 1904. After serving his apprenticeship from 1884 to 1890 with the late Mr. Joseph Stott, cotton mill architect and consulting engineer, of Oldham, he was engaged by Messrs. John Mowlem and Company on the design and construction of stone-breaking plant, and the erection of structural ironwork.
In 1896, he began to practice as a consulting engineer in London, and represented Messrs. Eastwood, Swingler and Company, Ltd., engineers and ironfounders, of Derby, and Messrs. James Carter and Sons, brassfounders, of Stalybridge. He was also, for a number of years, a director of Messrs. Eastwood until 1925, in which year that firm ceased to exist. During that period he was engaged in the management of the firm's London business.
Mr. Atkinson was for a short time after 1925 engaged on the erection of bridges for a number of constructional engineering firms, but ill health obliged him to retire early from professional work.
