About Thomas Lydwell Eckersley
Thomas Lydwell Eckersley FRS (27 December 1886–15 February 1959) was an English theoretical physicist and engineer.
Eckersley was born in London. He was educated at Bedales School, University College, London, where he gained a degree in engineering, and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he gained a second degree in mathematics. In 1919 he joined the Marconi Company as a theoretical research engineer and stayed there for the remainder of his career. He devoted most of his career to research into radio waves reflected downwards from the Heaviside layer and how they interfered with direction finding equipment.
Eckersley's younger brother was the BBC engineer Peter Eckersley.
