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.
Douglas and his future wife, Marjorie Lewis, emigrated to Canada in 1951 where he pursued a successful career in shipbuilding in Montreal.
