Abstract

In July 1899, Mellor and his wife, Emma, boarded a ship at Port Chalmers in Dunedin to take up the 1851 Exhibition Science Scholarship at Owens College, Manchester. Under the tutelage of organic chemist, William Perkin Jr, and physical chemist, Harold Dixon, Mellor conducted research into the combination of hydrogen and chlorine, among other things. This letter, signed by Edward Fiddes, Secretary to the Council and Senate and College Tutor, informs Mellor he has been ‘elected Research Fellow’.
