Abstract

Engineering biography is a challenge - interest is generally sparked by the works rather than the individual. Building on his experience with the ICE Biographical Dictionary of Civil Engineers Project, the author looks at issues of comparative greatness, international research challenges, and the value, or otherwise, of sound engineering biography to conservation engineers. The final conclusion is that, without biography, the profession can have no status in society.
