Bertram Hopkinson was the eldest son of John Hopkinson who had died so tragically in a mountaineering accident in 1898. He held the chair vacated by Ewing from 1903 to 1918. He worked in several fields of mechanical engineering; during the First World War he was concerned with military aeronautics and in charge of supply of armament to aircraft. He flew solo to airfields in England and France and crashed fatally in bad weather in one of these flights.
