Stephen of Linthouse: A Shipbuilding Memoir 1950 - 1983 by Alexander Stephen (TH 1948)
The story of Stephens is well recorded up till 1950, but thereafter the scent runs dry – at least until Sandy Stephen (the last Mahaging Director of the Company) produced a memoir of the final thirty three years of their history. The text covers a wide spectrum: From industrial relations to shipyard modernisation and from contract negotiation through to ship design, it has been pleasurable reading. With the author’s light hand and wide knowledge, we are introduced to some hardly known aspects of recent industrial history, whilst simultaneously entertained to delightful anecdotes of shipyard and personal family life.
