Prof. Hardy Cross of the U. of Illinois is an obvious choice. In about 1930 he was attending the national ASCE conference in Chicago (I think) and although he was a sanitary engr. professor, sat in on a session of the structural engineers where they discussed how difficult it was to analyze continuous structures. He developed the moment distribution procedures that night in his hotel (based on his concepts for analysis of water line networks) and delivered the paper to the structural engineers the next day.

Hello Everyone,
 
Iâ??m working on creating a Structural Engineering Hall of Fame online.  Can anyone give me some prominent structural engineers (alive or not) and structures that should be included.  Also, any other ideas for this project are greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Jeremy White
