Subject: George Maw

    George Maw was a 19th-C industrialist who had a ceramic tile-making
factory in the Severn Valley.  His factory is now part of the museum
complex in the Ironbridge Gorge, and it is interesting to visit the place:
the cradle of the Industrial Revolution.
    Maw was an amateur naturalist/geologist and did some geological
work in North Wales.  I have looked at this in relation to a detailed study
of the history of ideas about the Precambrian in North Wales, which is
being published in 'Annals of Science' this month.
    I hope this information may be of some interest/use.
