William E Schall Award

The William E Schall Award was established by the Society of X Ray Technology which merged with IHEEM in 1990. The award commemorates the life of William Ernest Schall who was first president of the Society in 1954 and remained an active member until his death in 1965.

William E Schall was one of the oldest members of the British X-ray industry, having joined his father as manager of Schall and Son in 1909. He became Governing Director of Schall & Son in his father’s retirement in 1912. His career, as Director, later Technical Consultant, continued through various mergers and acquisitions until shortly before his death. By this time the name was preserved in Solus Schall Ltd which, together with General Radiological Ltd and Solus Electronic Tubes Ltd, had been acquired in 1949 by Murphy Radio and in 1962 by the Rank Organisation.
