We are very grateful to Geoff Hayward, Chairman of the Engineer Surveyors Section of Unite from 2010 to 2015, who this week donated a copy of the new centenary history of the union to the TUC Library.

The Engineer Surveyors Association were formed in 1914 and affiliated to the TUC in 1940. The TUC Library holds a collection of publications from the union, including a (incomplete) collection of its journal. Geoff Hayward made several visits to the Library during the research for the new book and has also kindly donated various issues of the union journal to fill gaps in our collection. Geoff also donated a copy of the 50th anniversary “Jubilee” publication of the ESA, 1914-1964 (see pic below).
