AGM 2020 (History Section)
Mon. 27 January 2020 at 2:30 pm
£3 – £4
AGM followed by a presentation given by Tim Harrod entitled “Dr Siegfried Marian: The Enigma behind Fingle’s memorial plaque. Mad, bad or before his time?”
Dr Tim Harrod, who spent his working lifetime as a soil surveyor specialising in the Southwest of England, was made aware of this plaque near Fingle Bridge around 2005. Despite what it says on the plaque, Dr Marian had no publications in soil science’s journals and was unknown to any contemporary soil scientists. However, by asking questions in local pubs and among former forestry workers, also by scouring archives, his intriguing story emerged. Yet we still don’t have all the answers to the question posed in this talk’s title.
Cost: £3.00 members, £4.00 non-members.
