Arthur Henry Chapman

Chapman was engaged by Bertram Hopkinson as an aide in 1904. He came fresh from the Perse at the age of sixteen, and stayed in the Department for fifty years. He became Secretary to the Department in 1931. He has left a diary 'the events of fifty exciting years of my life, 1905-1955' in which he notes the interview of the first lady student of engineering in 1910 by Bertram Hopkinson.
