Some twenty five years ago Dr. A.H. Stuart established a private research laboratory for the investigation of certain industrial problems which were then being brought to his notice. These problems ranged over a wide area but in recent years those connected with lubrication have been much in evidence. Some of them have lead to an intensive study of the physical properties of graphite. In addition to a large number of private reports to engineering firms, he has published over 400 papers and articles on this work. Dr. Stuart has served on a number of research committees and panels of examiners and is the author of six books on applied mathematics. In the following article he discusses the value of colloidal graphite for lubrication at high temperatures and pressures, for running‐in new machinery and its application to resin‐bonded fabric bearings.
