Conde B. McCullough was born in Redfield, South Dakota, but his family soon moved to Fort Dodge, Iowa, where he attended school and graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in civil engineering in 1910.
His firs job was as an assistant engineer in the Iowa Highway Commission, where he soon rose to the position of design engineer. While there, he researched bridges and their design for a lawsuit filed in connection with some bridges that had not been accepted under the existing building codes.
This page is one in a series of biographies about famous civil engineers. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) tracks the path of Conde B. McCullough’s, including his influential post-WWI stint as head of the Oregon Department of Transportation and the architectural tendencies he acquired during that time. The link to photos of the architect's work returns nothing but a blank page; however, the Rogue River Bridge (mentioned in the body of the page's text) has a link to a picture and a description of the structure. Clicking the "resources" link brings up a modicum of recommended reading to spur on any aspiring researchers.
