‘Charles Paxton Markham was a man of marked personality. He was an engineer of exceptional ability, a brilliant organiser, and had a mind specially qualified to seize on the essentials of a problem. He enjoyed a reputation for fearless and independent thought and action, for honesty of purpose, and for a sense of fair play. One of the largest employers of labour in the country, he had in an unusual degree both sympathy and understanding for his employees, by whom he was trusted because he never failed them.’
