Anthony George Maldon (AGM) Michell was undoubtedly one of the greatest Australian engineers. A prolific inventor, he is best known for his tilting pad thrust bearing. It remains one of the greatest inventions in lubrication science, and revolutionised ship propulsion - without it, modern shipping would not be possible.
For the first time, this book reveals the story of Michell's fascinating life and astonishing achievements, and the motivations of the man behind the inventions. It weaves engineering and technology into the history of the early twentieth century.
Michell made significant contributions to Australia's proud engineering heritage, and is truly one of our unsung heroes.
