Ian R McDougall

Colleagues will be very sorry to learn of the death, on 28 March 2013, of Mr Ian McDougall, former Brotherton Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering.

Ian McDougall was appointed Lecturer in Chemical Engineering in 1957, having previously held an academic appointment at Bradford Technical College and a number of posts in industry.  Throughout the next twenty-eight years he proved an outstanding member of staff, who excelled across a range of responsibilities.  He was very well-known throughout the University, not least as a result of his lengthy involvement with the AUT; he was a long-serving member of the committee of the Local Association and President from 1977 to 1979.  He served continuously on the Senate, as an elected Faculty representative, from 1974 until 1985.  Mr McDougall was also prominently involved in the affairs of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, eventually becoming Honorary Registrar and taking a leading part in the formation of an individual Yorkshire Branch of the Institution, of which he was to be one of the first chairmen.  He retired from his University post in 1985.

The funeral service will be held at 2.00pm on Thursday 18 April, at Nab Wood Crematorium, Shipley, BD18 4BG, when the flag will be flown at half-mast on the Parkinson Building in Mr McDougall’s memory.

An obituary is being prepared.
