Dr. J. David Rogers, the Karl F. Hasselmann Missouri Chair in Geological Engineering at Missouri S&T, was recently awarded the Civil Engineering History and Heritage Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers.
“I have been fortunate throughout my career to be able to study issues that I am passionate about and pass on that knowledge on in a variety of ways to my students, colleagues, and the public,” says Rogers. “To receive this award is a true honor.”
ASCE executive director Thomas Smith wrote in a congratulatory letter that Rogers was selected for the award in recognition of his 30 years as a recognized expert on the history of dam failures, his significant publications on civil engineering history topics, and his many ASCE conference presentations.
The ASCE award was developed in 1966 to honor individuals for their contributions to a better knowledge and appreciation of the history and heritage of civil engineering.
