Elected F.R.S. 1964
Henton Morrogh devoted the whole of his working life to the study of cast iron, its structure, properties, applications and aspects of its production. He was particularly responsible for the development of techniques for preparing microspecimens to a state of perfection, which enabled him to study the morphology of the graphite phase, and he played a major role in the development of the revolutionary as–cast spheroidal graphite irons.He progressed from apprenticeship with British Cast Iron Research Association (BCIRA) to becoming its Director and was primarily responsible for the success of this Association and in establishing its worldwide reputation. He was a modest man, generous in the encouragement of his staff to perform research and to apply the results to the benefit of the iron founding industry. In short, it could be said that Henton Morrogh was the BCIRA and the BCIRA was Henton Morrogh–such was his unique character.
