This biographical dictionary consists of two parts. Part I contains about 170 entries of civil engineers who were born before the Civil War. To make this first volume as useful to as many people as possible, those selected for inclusion were judged to be the most frequently referred to in the historical literature that related to civil engineering. Part II contains the latest listing of the Archives' files. For the purpose of this Dictionary, a civil engineer engages in the planning, design, and supervision of construction of civil works. Further, it was believed desirable for the dictionary to include a few selected individuals who as teachers, inventors, researchers, or scientists, directly contributed to the development of civil engineering.
