Excerpt from High Explosives

As member of a number Of scientific societies, he was an occa s1onal contributor to the journals, but his active duties did not leave him much time to write for publication - his best work being done in his official reports to his Directors. He was prolific as an inventor, though most of his inventions were not patented. Among the most important of his inventions relating to the explosives industry were the Crusher Gauge for testing high explosives, the Quinan Packing Machine (the first successful machine for packing dynamite into cartridges), improvements in the manufacture of sulphuric acid, and numerous explosive compositions.

Excerpt from High Explosives

The concluding chapters of this book were written while the author was in the last stages of a severe illness, to which he succumbed on August 15th, 1910, at Wahroonga, New South Wales.

William Russell Quinan was born in Maryland, U.S.A., in 1848. He graduated from West Point, the Military Academy of the United States, in 1870, having distinguished himself for proficiency in mathematics and the physical sciences. After some years' service in the artillery, he resigned his commission in 1881 to devote himself to the development and manufacture of industrial explosives. His first engagement was with the California Vigorit Powder Company. From 1883 until 1899 he was Superintendent of the California Powder Works. In 1899 he was engaged by the late Cecil Rhodes to build a dynamite factory in South Africa, and was appointed General Manager of the Cape Explosives Works, Limited. He remained with this company until the end, and it was while in Australia in its interest, that the last illness overtook him.

As member of a number of scientific societies, he was an occasional contributor to the journals, but his active duties did not leave him much time to write for publication - his best work being done in his official reports to his Directors. He was prolific as an inventor, though most of his inventions were not patented. Among the most important of his inventions relating to the explosives industry were the Crusher Gauge for testing high explosives, the Quinan Packing Machine (the first successful machine for packing dynamite into cartridges), improvements in the manufacture of sulphuric acid, and numerous explosive compositions.

Quinan was distinguished, not only for his scientific attainments, but for his integrity of character, his loyal friendship and his loving characteristics as husband and father.
