History of Engineering Science at Oxford

Lecture 11 is on the history of the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford by Dr Alistair Howatson. The moment with timestamp 54:08, mentioning Dr Donald Walsh of Oriel, is of particular interest to me. (alternative link to Lecture 11)

A History of Engineering Science at Oxford, by Alistair Howatson, was published by the Oxford University Press (ISBN 9780952620822) in 2008.  I have not yet had the pleasure of reading it.

By the way, "Electrical Properties of Materials", by Laszlo Solymar and Donald Walsh, is now in its eighth edition (2010 edition). It must have been tremendously successful.  I remember, but alas have not mastered,  its first edition (1970 edition), published forty years ago!
