It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome Mr. A. Jackson, Technical Director, Appleby-Frodingham Steel Co. of the United Steel Company, U.K. This is Mr. Jackson's first visit to India and to the National Metallurgical Laborat-ory. To all those engaged in ferrous metallurgy, either in theory or in practice, Mr. Jackson's name is not new—his outstanding researches and development work relating to the use of oxygen for steel making in general and to the development of Ajax process of steel making in particular, are today considered classic contributions of their kind in the field of steel making and its complex technology. We have read about the unique Ajax process of oxygen steel making and its references in technical literature, but it is a privilege indeed to hear about its technique from the author himself. Mr. Jackson's experience in oxygen steel making is altogether unique combining as he does his experience of practical steel making with the theory of the subject in a manner assimilable both to the practical operators and theorists. Mr. Jackson is the author of a large number of scientific and technical papers which have been presented in international metall-urgical conferences and published in leading professional journals the world over. His publications have been climaxed by his up-to-date and excellent book which he lately published on oxygen steel making and which is comm-ended to he one of the best books of its kind on the subject.
