An Engineer’s Guide to Gift Wrap

An Engineer’s Guide to Gift Wrap You might remember a certain banana bread recipe that was sent to us back in Spring. While it resembled a mad man’s manifesto in many ways, we have to admit that a few of us are fans of the recipe it contained. We were completely...

As a part of Black History Month we want to recognize the contributions of African-American Engineers. Today we feature Howard P. Grant.

Born in Houston in 1925, Grant’s family moved to Los Angeles when he was a young boy. He began his engineering studies at the University of California Los Angeles but transferred to UC Berkeley two years later. After serving in the Air Force, Grant became the first Black graduate of the University of California Berkeley College of Engineering and became the first African-American civil engineer for the City and County of San Francisco, where he worked in the Water Department until 1984.

Grant also broke down racial barriers as the first known black member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, past president and treasurer of the California Society of Professional Engineers, and the second African-American civil engineer to be licensed by the state. He was also the man behind the Northern California Council of Black Professional Engineers, an organization that helps introduce the engineering field to Black youth
