The Wood Technology Society
22 Oct 2020


Bernard Eades

It is with grateful thanks to the IOM3 Librarians Hilda Kaune and Frances Perry that we have managed to obtain the obituary, and hence profile, of Bernard Eades (1906-1989).

Published in the Journal of the Institute of Wood Science in 1989/90, it is another interesting insight into one of the many personalities influential in the development of wood science and education in the last century.

Please follow this link to Board, and then scroll down the page.

There, you will also find that we have built up quite a number of profiles of Past Presidents and others that have been important in the history of the Institute of Wood Science (now the Wood Technology Society).

The Insitute is currently in the process of digitalising the Journal of the Institute of Wood Science - indeed a mammoth task.
