Examples of "selbie"
William Boothby Selbie writes in "The Life of Andrew Martin Fairbairn":
In 1908, Robert Selbie was appointed General Manager, a position he held until 1930.
Selbie was born in Birsay on the 24 February 1889 to John and Margaret Selbie (née Mackenzie), though his year of birth is often cited as 1890. His father, John Alexander Selbie, was a minister in the Free Church and later went on to be a professor at Aberdeen United Free College. Selbie was third child of four, having an older brother William Philip, an older sister Jane, and a younger sister Eleanor. He held a B.Sc. degree from the University of Aberdeen, graduating in 1910.
Evelyn Selbie (July 6, 1871 – December 7, 1950) was a stage actress and performer in both silent and sound films.
Selbie took up the position of Assistant Naturalist in the Dublin Museum of Science and Art in 1911. Under the guidance of Robert Francis Scharff, Selbie worked on crustacea and myriapoda, most notably on the specimens from the Fisheries cruiser the "Helga" and the Clare Island Survey. His ability to illustrate his monographs was a talent that was noted by his contemporaries.
Evelyn Selbie died at the Motion Picture Country Hospital in Los Angeles, California in 1950. She was 79. Selbie entered the Motion Picture Country Hospital two weeks after suffering a heart attack. The interment was at Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, California.
As part of a drive to make hospitals healthier, Selbie has called for a 'tobacco-free' NHS, with a blanket ban on smoking on their grounds.
Further coordination in the form of a General Managers' Conference faltered after Selbie withdrew in 1911 when the Central London Railway, without any reference to the conference, set its season ticket prices significantly lower than those on the Met's competitive routes. Suggestions of merger with the Underground Group were rejected by Selbie, a press release of November 1912 noting the Met's interests in areas outside London, its relationships with main-line railways and its freight business.
Selbie enlisted into the 15th Royal Scots Regiment on the outbreak of World War I as a private on 4 November 1914. On the recommendation of his C.O. he received a commission into the Scottish Rifles where he attained the rank of Second Lieutenant in January 1915. He died on the Somme in July 1916. Selbie is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, and on the Birsay War Memorial.
Beginning in 1912 Selbie was affiliated with the Western Essanay Company. Selbie began her motion picture career in 1912 as the leading lady of Broncho Billy Anderson. Her silent movie credits include "The Squaw Man", which was the first Hollywood production of Cecil B. De Mille. She continued in motion pictures until 1949 with "The Doolins of Oklahoma", in which she played "Birdie". She participated in the Fu Manchu film serials and did free-lance work on radio.
In 1903 Robert Selbie was appointed Secretary of the Metropolitan Railway, working on the electrification of the London sections of the line; by 1905 the route was electrified as far as Harrow, although the sections north of Harrow, including the Chesham branch, continued to be worked by steam power. In 1908 he was appointed General Manager, a position he was to hold until 1930. Selbie realised that Watkin's schemes and the expensive electrification project had left the company with major financial liabilities, and that the MR's core business in central London would come under significant pressure as the use of automobiles increased and as the new Underground Electric Railways of London tube lines improved their services. Selbie set out to reshape the MR as a feeder route for goods and passengers into London.

Some of these estates were developed by MRCE, a company that Robert H. Selbie, the Metropolitan Railway’s General Manager, set up in 1919. It would eventually build houses along the line, from Neasden reaching far out as Amersham.
