Reginald Travers Morgan (c1890-1940)

1941 Obituary [1]

REGINALD TRAVERS MORGAN received his technical education at Liverpool University from 1909 to 1912 when he graduated M.Eng., passing through the workshops during the same period. He then went to Canada and became assistant to the city engineer, Winnipeg, for whom he took charge of the erection of pump houses, in 1913; he also acted as draughtsman to the curator of the water district until 1914, when for a short period he was engaged on road survey for the government of Manitoba, and took charge of the construction of a 30-foot ferro-concrete road bridge.

On the outbreak of war in 1914, he obtained a commission in the Royal Field Artillery and served until 1919: during this period he passed through the Ordnance College at Woolwich and obtained honours in mechanical engineering and other subjects. Subsequently he received an appointment there as a lecturer. From 1919 until 1929 he was assistant city building surveyor to Liverpool Corporation. Mr. Morgan then went into practice as a consulting engineer, dealing with the foundations and structural work for many types of buildings, among many others the London University buildings in Bloomsbury, Thames House, and the new Westminster Hospital.

He was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1921 and was also a Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers. His death occurred, in his fiftieth year, on 26th September 1940.
