SERVICE OF ALUMNI ON CANALS,



361



CANALS.

Many of the alumni were prominent on the early canal con-
struction. Joseph D. Allen, '25, served for some time as chief
engineer of the Erie Canal. George M. Totten, '27, was engineer
on several canals. His most distinguished service was on the Pan-
ama canal, as chief consulting engineer on the staff of M. de Lesseps.
William S. Campbell, '28, made the surveys and plans for a canal
across the state of Florida. Edwin F. Johnson, '25, made the
surveys and estimates for the first ship canal around Niagara
Falls. *

Several of the cadets have become prominent in connection
with the development of power plants. Edward D. Adams, '64,
as president of the Cataract Construction Co., with a capital of
$100,000,000, had personal supervision of the construction of the
immense electric plant at Niagara Falls, which was one of the
greatest engineering feats of the age. Charles T. Crocker, '53, was
president of the Turners Falls Co., which controls extensive power
plants in Massachusetts. Capt. Holland Wheeler, '59, Josiah
Hall, '61, F. C. Davis, '95, Timothy J. Holland, '07, and Oliver
Y. Leonard, '07, have been extensively engaged in irrigation work.

The service of the alumni with canal and power companies-is

TELEGRAPH AND TELEPHONE COMPANIES.

Several of the alumni have become prominent with electrical,
telegraph, and telephone companies. To Gen. Alonzo Jackman,
'36, belongs the honor of inventing the ocean telegraph. He
published in the Vermont Mercury of Aug. 14, 1846, a complete
description of his plan for the telegraph. The scientists of the
time considered his plan visionary, but Cyrus W. Field saw the
practicability and made use of it. The only practical difference be-
tween his plan and Field's was the use of rubber insulation instead
of gutta-percha, as planned by General Jackman. Edward D. Adams,
'64, has been prominent in developing the telegraph systems in
Central and South America, serving as vice-president and director
of the Central and South American Telegraph Co., 1885-99. He
is president of the Bullock Electrical Manufacturing Co. Harry
B. Thayer, '77, has become prominent in the manufacture of the
telephone and telegraph. He is president of the Western Electric
Co., and vice-president of the American Telephone and Telegraph
Co. Frederic H. Rand, '64, has gained prominence in the develop-
ment of telegraph and telephone lines in Florida. The service
of the Alumni with electric telegraph and telephone companies
