James Douglas Hearnshaw studied naval architecture at Constantine Technical College - which later became Teesside University. He graduated in 1942 while working for the Furness Shipbuilding Company.
'I hadn't even considered the possibility of a scholarship before but it has drastically improved my university life.'
Douglas and his future wife, Marjorie Lewis, emigrated to Canada in 1951 where he pursued a successful career in shipbuilding in Montreal.
