The American Wood Preservers Institute published "Improved Standard Designs 
Pressure-Treated Timber Crib Walls in 1969. The address was McLean, VA and 
the telephone number was 703-893-4005 in 1969. It gave "designs" for walls 
ranging from 15'-7" to 30'-0" including some with highway or railroad 
surcharges. The "designs" were produced for AWPI by Skilling, Helle, 
Christianson and Robertson of Seattle. No description of how they arrived 
at the solutions is included.
