He was educated at South African College, Cape Town, 1924-1928, and the University of Cape Town, 1929-1933, where his studies combined chemistry with mechanical engineering. He went on to take a doctorate at Cape Town researching on the refrigerated gas storage of South African fruit (PhD 1937). In 1937 he married Hilda Watney Wilson; they had four children. He returned to England in 1937 and joined the Rolls Royce Aeroengine Division, Derby where he worked on the Merlin, Griffon and Vulture engines. In 1940 he transferred to a new department investigation of engines for supersonic flight. In December 1965 he was appointed Chief Technical the RAF. Jamison’s work in missile propulsion led to the In 1962 he was given the task of setting up a new Executive (Research) of Rolls Royce, Bristol Engines Division. He retired in 1975. Advanced Propulsion Research Department at Bristol Siddeley Engines Limited. Jamison became Chief Engineer (Research) and in 1971 Jamison was Visiting Professor at the University of Bath 1969-1973. He was elected FRS 1969 and FEng 1976. He died in 1991. being set up by S.G. Hooker to develop gas turbines at Derby. Six years later he was appointed assistant to A.A. Griffith and employed on advance performance and research planning for engines. In 1948 he became technical adviser to R.N. Dorey on centrifugal engines and was closely involved with the Derwent, Nene, Dart and Tay engines. Two years later he joined the engine division of the Bristol Aeroplane Company. Shortly after arriving at Bristol he took charge of the department entrusted with the design and development of ramjet engines for the Bristol Bloodhound Guided Missile which saw service with biographical records, records of Jamison’s research and lectures material. For a fuller account of Jamison’s life and work see the biographical memoir by L. Haworth, M.A. Nedham and G.L. Wilde, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society 40 (1994), 173-194. The material is presented in the order given in the list of contents. The collection contains DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION R.R. Jamison NCUACS 60/3/96 Section A, Biographical, presents records of his career, appointments and awards from the University of Cape Town to his retirement from Rolls Royce.

His experience included: a) Cooling development for the Rolls Royce ‘Exe’ 24 cylinder, air-cooled, sleeve valve engine. b) Lubrication development on Vulture, Merlin and Griffon engines. c) In 1940 he transferred to a new department being set up to develop gas turbine aero-engines. Its initial work was on Griffith contraflow turbine with interest later shifting to Whittle type and straight axial units. During the next ten years in his responsibilities covered many aspects of gas turbine research, design and development, including the aerodynamics of blading and ducts, combustion, mechanical development and testing.
