The Lost Stradivarius
J. Meade Falkner
John Meade Falkner was a remarkable character, as he was not only a scholar and a writer, but a captain of industry as well. Born in 1858, the son of a clergyman in Wiltshire, he was educated at Marlborough and Hertford Collage, Oxford. On leaving the university, he became tutor to the sons of Sir Andrew Noble, the vice-chairman of the Armstrong-Whitworth Company; and his ability so much impressed his employer that in 1885 he was offered a post in the firm. Without connections or influence in industrial circles, and solely by his intellect, he rose to be a director in 1901, and finally in 1915, chairman of this enormous business. He was actually chairman during the important years 1915-1920, and remained a director until 1926.
