Mr. Heenan was born in 1847, and had been a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers since 1875, and of the Institution of Civil Engineers since 1876. An account of his career appears in Engineering for June 25. At seventeen years of age he went to India and spent about fifteen years in the Public Works Department. Mr. Heenan returned to England in 1880 and founded the firm of Heenanand Froude, Ltd., of which he was chairman and managing director until his retirement two years ago.
