Notes:

The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering IABSE was founded in the aftermath of World War I in 1929 to reconnect professionals who had lost contact through the isolation of war. From the very outset the Associa-tion established a worldwide platform for the spread of information on theoretical developments and the growing proliferation of engineering specialties and tasks, and it quickly became the international voice of the profession, forming a source of reference on the fi eld and a basis for the social recognition of structural engineering as a political, economic and cultural force to be reckoned with in the development of the 20th century. In all these goals IABSE succeeded admirably, and this is the story of the development and the far-sighted founders and dedicated participants in the association’s steady growth. It documents the events, the personalities and their ideas, talents, strengths and weaknesses, as well as what motivated them and guided the Association through the diffi cult years of World War II and into the expansive development in the globalized arena of the latter part of the century.

Where we go from here is unknown, but where we come from is our history and the springboard from which the human race develops. It chronicles case studies in the evolution of ideas and the life of cultural organizations. This is the story of how, through whom, and why IABSE came to be what it is today.
