Re: Newcastle on Tyne

Lot's of Sinclair stories from Newcastle upon Tyne

John Sinclair LTD., Tobacco Company

 Founded in   ?   by John Sinclair (1826-1895)  who moved to
Newcastle-on-Tyne, Scotland in the mid 1800's.  John was married to Margaret
(1840-1905) and had about a dozen children.  John had a brother Robert. They
were the sons of  Robert Sinclair.  John's picture appeared on the cigarette
packs.  His sons sold the business to the Imperial Tobacco Company

Dr.Robert Sinclair received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science
from Cambridge University. After holding research positions at the
University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and the University of California,
Berkeley, he joined the faculty of Stanford University, Department of
Materials Science and Engineering, in 1977.
Dr. Sinclair's research centres on the application of high resolution
transmission electron spectroscopy (TEM) to a wide range of materials
problems. TEM provides imaging of materials at the atomic level, and
therefore provides microstructural information necessary for the
understanding of structural, electrical, and magnetic properties of
materials. Dr. Sinclair's research has included materials of interest both
to microelectronics and to magnetic data storage.
