Hitchcock surprised me, too, Rob. I thought I had heard of most of the famous engineers over the years, but Hitchcock's name had never come up previously, at least for me.

Nice slide show,. Chuck. Yes, that's right about George Bailey. He wanted to travel the world, then come home and build things. The most surprising one on the list for me is Hitchcock.

I agree. I also find it interesting that in Frank Capra's best-known film, It's a Wonderful Life, the main character, George Bailey, dreamed of being a civil engineer.
