OBITUARY:Monica Maurice

OBITUARY:Monica Maurice | History of women in engineering | Scoop.it
I recently spoke on the telephone to Monica Maurice in her office at the Wolf Safety Lamp Company, the Sheffield-based specialists in safety lighting engineering, with a world-wide reputation second to none. On that occasion her son John Jackson (my twin brother), now managing director, and her grandson, a graduate in design engineering, were poring over a technical problem with her. Her father, William Maurice, founder of the company, who purchased the business rights from Friemann and Wolf of Saxony in 1910, would have been proud to have known that three further generations were thriving as a result of his vision and insight.
