Procter is still relevant today

Every leather Technical Director worth her or his salt in the leather industry knows about Professor Henry Richardson Procter (1848-1927) who was Professor of Leather Industries at the Yorkshire College/University of Leeds, from 1891 to 1919. Many technicians today have his Leather Chemists' Pocket Book on their shelves.
