Title
The Engineers’ Engineer: John Kennedy and the Port of Montreal
Abstract
The author gives an overview and analysis of the career of civil engineer Sir John Kennedy (1838-1921), and comments on what Kennedy’s career reveals of the professional ideals of early twentieth century Canadian engineering. Kennedy spent most of his working life as Chief Engineer of the Montreal Harbour Commission, where he oversaw the deepening of the St. Lawrence River channel from Quebec City to Montreal, and a complete reconstruction of the Montreal harbour – two projects that essentially made the modern Port of Montreal.
