Most civil engineers know of the legendary Roebling family, but do you know how family dynamics shaped their contributions to the civil engineering field? Consultant, author, researcher and historian Donald Sayenga will unravel the intricate web woven by this driven and innovative family, and the myths and fables of the Brooklyn Bridge in his talk “Some Things I Wish I Didn’t Know about the Brooklyn Bridge.” The Distinguished Lecture Series features authors from ASCE’s library of award-winning books. Hear Sayenga and other notable authors at the ASCE 2015 Annual Convention, October 11-14 in NYC. Register: http://asceconvention.org/.
