The National Bicentennial is less than 4 years away and ASCE has sparked the formation of a special committee by the Engineers Joint Council with the mission of preparing a series of programs so that engineers can make a significant contribution to the great celebration of 1976. Perhaps by then American civil engineers will recognize and fully appreciate the value of the history of their profession and perhaps our engineering schools will teach full courses in civil engineering history. If so, civil engineering will be a more rewarding profession to its members and a more respected profession to the public.
