Dates of existence
Dr Kenneth Alan Williams, known to all as Bill, was born in Brentford and educated at Mercers School and Chelsea Polytechnic. He passed the ARIC (Associate Royal Institute of Chemistry) examinations in 1923 and gained full BSc Honours in 1926. He was an analytical chemist, specialising in edible fats and oils. He was President of the Society for Analytical Chemistry in 1955-6.
He did a great deal of research into the history of Thames Rowing Club and indeed Geoffrey Page acknowledges that the early sections of 'Hear The Boat Sing' draw extensively on his work.
