State Engineers -- Deputy State Engineers -- Special Deputy State Engineers -- Division Engineers -- Consulting Engineers -- Supervising, Resident and Senior Assistant Engineers, and Expert Engineers of Corresponding Rank -- Assistant Engineers.

The names of the engineers of the grade of assistant engineer and higher ranks who have been connected with the State Engineer's department since the time of the preliminary Barge canal survey (1900) constitute the present chapter. It has been attempted to make the list complete even at the risk of including the names of some who were engaged on other work than Barge canal construction. Between 1900 and 1909 the building of State highways employed the time of a large part of the State Engineer's corps. Since the list contains all the names of the given grades in the whole department during those years, it is doubtless true that several men appear there who were engaged chiefly in highway work and whose connection with the Barge canal was rather slight or brief, or possibly who were not connected with it at all. It is not possible now without undue labor to determine just which are such names.
