Back in June 2018, we launched a call for applicants for the Thomas Chapman Scholarships. We are excited to announce the two successful candidates who will begin their work in January 2019.
Peter Phillipson, is a retired engineer, who has since gained a BA in History and Italian and an MA in Renewable Energy. Peter will be looking at ship design and safety throughout the nineteenth century.
Alexandra Barber, who gained a BA in History and Maritime History at Hull, and is now completing a MRes in Maritime History. Alexandra will be looking at safety measures in the distant water trawl fisheries since the 1900s.
They will be using the library and archive at 71 Fenchurch Street to help with their research. We are looking forward to working with them in the future!
