Civil Engineering Work.



More of the graduates and past cadets (549) have followed
the profession of Civil Engineering, than any other line of work.
The life of an engineer is one full of dangers and privations, and the
military education received at the University has trained the men

to become self-reliant and able to cope with adverse circumstances.
The habits of precision, promptness, and the loillinyness to obey
orders have made the Norwich graduates marked men. Norwich
graduates were largely pioneers in early railway construction
work in this country. This branch of engineering has especially
attracted the men, no doubt, owing to the greater advantages offered
for active administrative work. The graduates of the University
have become eminent as railroad builders not only in this country,
but also in Europe, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America,
Cuba, the Philippine Islands, and in China.

The first steam railroad in this country, the Pottsville and
Danville R. R., in Penns3dvania, was built by Moncure Robinson,
'24. Edwin F. Johnson, '25, became one of the distinguished engi-
neers of this country. He was the first, in 1825, to advocate the
building of a railroad across the continent. He wrote extensively
on the subject and it was due largely to his writings that the idea
became popular. He was the chief engineer of many thousands of
miles of railroad; his crowning achievement was the building of the
Northern Pacific R. R. Joseph D. Allen, '25, made the first sur-
veys, in 1836, for a railroad entering New York City. He was
chief engineer on many important works, and was one of the first
engineers to advocate the establishing of the present standard
guage track.

William Parker, '25, was another distinguished engineer.
He was for several years superintendent of the Panama R. R.,
with his cadet associate, George I\I. Totten, '27. Hiram P. Wood-
worth, '25, was the chief engineer for the Illinois Internal Im-
provement Commission and William R. Lee, '25, was the chief
engineer of the Boston and Providence and other railroads in New
England. William P. Parrott, '25, was chief engineer on several
railroads in New England, and one of the founders of the Boston
Society of Civil Engineers. George M. Totten, '27, gained a high
I'ank in his profession. He was chief engineer of many railroads
in this country, but his crowning achievement was the construction
of the Panama R. R., under almost tmsurmountable difficulties.
Henry J. Ranney, '28, was chief engineer of the Lexington & Ohio
