Melville George and Sheila Murdoch Tuck
Melville George and Sheila Murdoch Tuck

Melville Tuck (1929-1990) matriculated at the University of Glasgow in 1947. He postponed his studies in 1949 to complete his National Service and graduated with an ordinary degree in Engineering in 1955. He married Sheila Murdoch McIntosh at the University Chapel on 21st August 1957.

After Mrs Tuck passed away in 2009, a bequest was made in memory of her husband who had enjoyed and highly regarded his degree from the School of Engineering.

Monies have been put towards three areas which will all carry the Tuck name: an undergraduate teaching laboratory for mechanics, a student workshop and a prize for the best Mechanical Engineering student.
