As chief engineer of Pacific Short Line
Bridge Co., designed and supervised
construction of combined railway and

highway bridge over Missouri River at
Sioux City; chief engineer, Omaha
Bridge & Terminal Ry. Co., designed a
double track railway and highway
bridge across the Missouri River at

action of Alberta Government killed the
project. For the first half of this line
got far straighter line with much less
verical variation and at much less ccst
than anticipated, and for remaining half
of line, although surveys had not been
made, indications promised equally fa-
vorable results. Aided the president,
Mr. Clarke, in securing concession and
to raise money for building, having
made two trips with him to Europe for
this latter purpose. Built over 200

About the end of 1903 Dr. Waddell
was retained by the International
Nickel Co. of New York City, which
company controls three-quarters of the
world's total output of nickel, to make


extensive investigation of the suitability
of nickel steel for bridgei building. His
experiments were both elaborate end ex-
haustive, covering every conceivable
kind of practical tests, and occupied over
three years in the making, the total cost
of the investigation being in the neigh-
borhood of $50,000. After the investiga-
tion and the reports were finished, Dr.
Waddell wrote for the American Society
of Civil Engineers a long paper describ-
ing fully the tests and drawing numer-
ous deductions. This paper is essential-
ly an economic study of the question of
"nickel steel for bridges," which was the
title of his paper. It was published first
in the "Proceedings" of the Society then
discussed by a number of prominent en-
gineers of America and Europe, and final-
ly the paper and the discussions were
published together in the Society's
"Transactions" for 1909. Later, the spe-
cial committee for the awarding of the
Norman medal of that year unanimously
decided to award it to Dr. Waddell's pa-
per as being the best and most important
one presented to the Society for that
year. The practical result of Dr. Wad-
dell's investigations on "nickel steel for
bridges" has been the use of that alloy
for at least three long-span bridges, viz.:
The Manhattan Bridge, New York; the
Free Bridge, St. Louis, and the new Que-
bec Bridge. Dr. Waddell's firm is also
using the alloy in the moving spans of
some of their vertical lift bridges in or-
der to cut down materially the total
weight to be raised and lowered. Nickel
steel as a material for building long-
span bridges has come to stay, and it
will be used for shorter and still shorter
spans as time goes on, unless some
equally good or better and cheaper alloy
is discovered.

Dr. Waddell is the author of the fol-
lowing works: A compilation of 22 of his
principal professional papers, edited by
John Lyle Harrington, 1905; "The De-
signing of Ordinary Iron Highway
Bridges," published by Wiley & Sons,
New York, 1884; "A System of Iron Rail-
road Bridges for Japan," 1885, published
by the Japanese Government for private
circulation only; "Civil Engineering Edu-
cation," published in Engineering News;
"General Specifications for Highway
Bridges of Iron & Steel"; "Some Dis-
puted Points in Railway Bridge Design-
ing"; "Elevated Railroads"; "De Ponti-
bus" (Wiley & Sons, 1898); "Specifica-
tions for Steel Bridges"; "Foundations
for Important Buildings in the City of
Mexico"; "Flow Line Bridge at Kansas
City"; "Engineering Specifications and
Contracts," a standard work, published
by Engineering News; "Addresses to En-
gineering Studc"**'," a compilation of
forty-four of the best addresses made
to engineering students by various pro-
fessors and engineers in the last 25
years, edited by Dr. J. A. L. Waddell
and John Lyle Harrington, containing
several papers by both editors. In prep-
aration a large and elaborate treatise on

Bridge Engineering, a joint book by Dr.
Waddell and Mr. Harrington.

The firm of Waddell & Harington has
a very large practice in building bridges,
giving special attention to movable struc-
tures, besides doing important work in
other lines. They have designed and
patented a number of improvements on
Dr. Waddell's old type of vertical lift
bridge. This type is being adopted by
a number of the leading railroad sys-
tems of America, including the Harriman
lines, Pennsylvana Railway, Iowa Cen-
tral, Lake Shore & Michigan Southern,
Missouri Pacific, Chicago & Northwest-
ern, and Louisiana & Arkansas. They
have in operation six vertical lifts, three
more will be complete this year, and a
dozen others are now being designed or
constructed. Their work extends over
the whole of the United States and parts
of Canada, Mexico, Japan and New Zea-
land. Some thirteen million dollars'
worth of work is (December, 1911) being
prosecuted through their office.
