All members of the IMF will know of the name Hothersall by virtue of the Institute’s Medal award and lecture, but many will not know of his great influence in the early days of the Institute and metal finishing research in the UK. It is not clear whether he was a founding member but he was certainly an early member recruited by Donald J. MacNaughton, who was a founder with Samuel Field and others, and for whom he worked and succeeded at the Woolwich ‘Arsenal’ Research Department.
