SIR DUNCAN WILSON who, until his resignation in 1940 was chief inspector of factories, died suddenly on March 2 in his seventieth year. On leaving Eton he entered Magdalen College, Oxford, where he took his degree with first-class honours in natural science, and although his life-work has mainly been in administration, yet his scientific training proved a very valuable asset.
