Following the launch of the Hensolt SEAONC Legacy Project in June 2018, the committee has continued to add to the project with more data points this year, including Joseph Penzien, Egor Popov, Isadore Thompson, the China Basin Building, 181 Fremont, the Crown Zellerbach Building, and the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. The project can be viewed at and if you wish to contribute to the project, click here.

In addition to research, the committee has been working hard on publicizing the project more. In September, the committee co-sponsored a structural walking tour of Downtown San Francisco with AIA, featuring some of the buildings on the website. The committee also sponsored the October SEAONC monthly meeting on the Old San Francisco Mint presented by Robert Bailey. Finally, the committee started a newsletter series called “From the SEAONC History Vaults,” which provides interesting facts about data points on the project website. The committee has more planned in the coming year to shine a spotlight on the storied history of structural engineering in Northern California.

Of course, our committee is always looking for more ideas, energy and participation from the SEAONC membership. This committee provides the unique perspective on the history of structural engineering in Northern California and it is an opportunity to learn and understand how our profession has evolved. Therefore, if you are interested in participating in this ongoing endeavor, please contact the SEAONC office at 415-974-5147 or
