Dr Peter Swales

Colleagues will be very sorry to learn of the death of Dr Peter Swales, who was a senior lecturer in Mechanical Engineering until his retirement in 1991.

Dr Swales’ association with the University endured for over 40 years. It began as a student; he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 1955. He joined the University staff in May 1964 as a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, completed a PhD in 1969, and was promoted to senior lecturer in 1973. Post retirement he continued as a part-time Senior Fellow until November 1994.

The funeral will take place at 11.15 am on Monday 9 February 2015 at St Barnabas Church, Weeton. The flag will be flown at half-mast on the Parkinson Building on that day, in Dr Swales’ memory.

A full obituary will be prepared.
