100 Years of T.H.E. Conference History

1914 - 1924

Short Course in Highway Engineering

The purpose of the Short Course in Highway Engineering is to aid the newly appointed County Superintendents of Highways in preparing for their duties, and also to help any who may aspire to become the assistants of the County Superintendents of Highways, or who seek employment under the State Highway Commission. It is hoped that the instruction given, the demonstrations made, and the machinery exhibited will prove of interest also to contractors, contractor's foremen, and to Highway Commissioners and others interested in road improvement.

There will be no charges of any kind by the University. The course will be open to any one without examination or other condition, except to register in Room 221, Engineering Building, upon arrival.

Address of Welcome, Dr. Edmund Janes James, President of the University
