Mr.Dillon my older brother bought me a copy of Elegant Arches,Soaring Spans about Mr. McCullough and his bridges. I read this book in 2 days! His designs are futuristic,even for today's time. Awesome.

I couldn't agree with you more Chalon, Mr. McCullough's bridge designs are special indeed. I have always been more interested in truss bridges, but am very fond of his concrete structures as well. It's good to hear of your interest in engineering, I wish I had been set on a career choice at your age.

Mr.Conde McCullough was an absolute genius. I am a great admirer of his work. I am also 14 and am studying even now to become a structural engineer.
