Brian E. P. Beeston (Meynell 1948 – 1958)
Brian graduated from Cambridge with a BA, the University of Pennsylvania, USA, with an MSc and Birmingham, UK, with a PhD, all in Materials Science. After working with AEI Scientific Apparatus (now Shimadzu Corp) in Harlow, Essex and New York and MRC (now Sony) in New York, he concluded his professional career as Technical Marketing Manager with Applied Materials, first in Horsham, Sussex and then in Santa Clara, California.
He is now retired in San Diego, CA, enjoying its superb climate, wide range of cultures and its hi-tech atmosphere. His most enduring memory of Ellesmere is his hat-trick, as a 13 year old, in the Under15s inter-house semifinal against Wakeman in 1953 when he snatched victory from the jaws of defeat taking the last four Wakeman wickets in seven balls. Does anyone else remember a hat-trick being performed on Top Field?
