Thomas M. Petry
Executive Secretary
           The 136th Chapter is Installed at George Mason University

          The 42nd Conclave at the
University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa
approved the petition of the Civil En-
gineering Honor Society (CEHS) at
George Mason University (GMU) to
become Chi Epsilon’s 136th chapter.
The CEHS was founded in the fall of
2008, having been proposed by Dr.
Girum Urgessa, a faculty member of
the Civil, Environmental and Infra-
structure Engineering Department at
GMU. George Mason University is lo-
cated in Fairfax, Virginia. The Department is part of the Volgenau School of Information
Technology and Engineering.
          The Civil Engineering program at George Mason was founded in 1989 and is an in-
novative Civil and Infrastructure Engineering (CIE) program that resides at the crossroads
of civil engineering, information technology (IT), and urban planning. This extended scope
of this CIE degree program offers GMU graduates the opportunity to apply IT solutions in
an arena which will directly impact the public’s well being in the specialties of transporta-
tion, water resources, environment, telecommunications, and energy. The unique CIE pro-
gram focuses on how these interrelated systems are conceived, developed, designed, built,
maintained, and renewed in a complex urban environment, such as the Washington, D.C.
metropolitan area where GMU is located.
          CEIE graduates are expected to be competent in applying both the art and science
of engineering, adept at understanding and using the tools available, and capable of examin-
                                                    ing problems from a variety of perspec-
                                                    tives. He or she should also be able to
                                                    assess objectives and concerns, identify
                                                    potential solutions, analyze options,
                                                    and execute a solution. CIE graduates
                                                    work for organizations including: land
                                                    development	 and	 construction	 firms;	
                                                     departments	of	transportation;	consult-
                                                     ing	engineers;		water,	wastewater,	and	
                                                     power	utilities;	local	governments;	and	
                                                     information	technology	firms.	
                                                           On May 2, 2010, Chi Epsilon’s

              Chi Epsilon Celebrates Reactivation of Two Chapters

         During this calendar year, two Chi Epsilon chapters that had become inactive over
the	years	since	they	were	installed	have	become	reactivated.			The	first	was	the	chapter	at	
Illinois Institute of Technology. This chapter was the second formed in 1923 when the
Society was starting to grow. Unfortunately, it became inactive in 2002. The CE Depart-
ment Chairman, Dr. Jamshid Mohammadi was instrumental in the reactivation of chapter
number 2 in November of 2009, and this chapter was represented at the 42nd Conclave at
the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa. They initiated 19 new student members and their
new Faculty Advisor, Dr. Mehdi Modares. We all are pleased to welcome the IIT chapter
number 2 into active status.
         The other chapter reactivated during 2010 was the one at New York University-
Poly. The chapter, number 31, was installed in 1949 as Polytechnic University of New
York, and had been inactive since 2001. Dr. Fletcher H. Griffis, Jr., who became the chap-
ter’s Faculty Advisor, was highly involved in making them active this year. The chapter

initiated 21 new members into Chi Epsilon. We wish to welcome this chapter back to active
status and will look forward to learning about their endeavors. This brings the total number
of active chapters in Chi Epsilon to 129.

                    Thirteen Chi Epsilon Chapters Receive
               Susan C. Brown Outstanding Performance Awards

        The Susan C. Brown Award for Outstanding Performance was given to 13 chapters
during 42nd Conclave held at the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa. The three chapters
denoted with the * were winners for the second Conclave in a row. This award is given to
chapters	that	have	conducted	their	chapter	business	in	a	flawless,	exemplary	way	during	the	
time between Conclaves. For the three chapters given this award for the second consecu-
tive time this means conducting chapter business perfectly for four straight years!
        The chapters receiving the Susan C. Brown Award for 2010 are:

                                  Iowa State University

                    Dr. Neilon J. Rowan is honored by receiving
                         the 2010 Harold T. Larsen Award

                                                  Chi Epsilon’s highest honor awarded for
                                            service to the Society was awarded this year to
                                            Dr. Neilon J. Rowan, the retiring Editor of the
                                            Transit. Neil is only the 18th member to be so
                                            honored	 since	 the	 first	 was	 awarded	 in	 1977.	
                                            The Larsen Award is named for Harold T. Lar-
                                            sen and was established at the 24th Conclave of
                                            Chi Epsilon. Harold T. Larsen was a founding
                                            member of Chi Epsilon and served the Society
                                            as Secretary/Treasurer during 1922 to 1924 and
                                            again	from	1926	to	1928.		He	was	the	first	Edi-
tor	of	the	Transit,	serving	from	1922	to	1924.		It	is	fitting	that	Dr.	Rowan,	Editor	of	the	
Transit	from	1988	to	2010,	receive	this	honor.		He	has	exemplified	the	outstanding	service	
and adherence to the four pillars of Chi Epsilon-Scholarship, Character, Practicality, and
         Dr. Rowan was initiated into Chi Epsilon as a faculty member in the spring of 1964
at Texas A&M University. He was elevated to Chapter Honor Member by the chapter in
1983. He served the Texas A&M University chapter as Faculty Advisor from 1987 to 1997.
He stepped in as interim Southwest District Councillor during 1987-1988 and became Edi-
tor of the Transit in 1988. His many years of
dedicated service to Chi Epsilon and its mem-
bers have been outstanding, and he is certainly
deserving of this high honor.
         Since Dr. Rowan was unable to at-
tend last spring’s Conclave at the University
of	Alabama-Tuscaloosa,	due	to	health	difficul-
ties, Dr. Robert L. Henry, Southwest District
Councillor, and Dr. Thomas M. Petry, Execu-
tive Secretary, traveled to see him in November,
representing the National Council. During the
short visit they presented Dr. Rowan with his
2010 Harold T. Larsen Award. Pictures show
Dr. Rowan with Dr. Henry and Dr. Petry, and a
closeup of Dr. Rowan with his award. It is easy
to see how surprised and pleased he is of this
highest honor. All of Chi Epsilon is thankful
for Dr. Rowan’s excellent service and we wish
him well, while we hope to see him soon at Chi
Epsilon meetings.

        It was originally hoped that Dr. Bill Carroll, the Dean of Engineering at UTA,
would attend the Conclave to receive his recognition. However, since he was unable to at-

Three engineers were huddled together discussing the nature of God.

The mechanical engineer said he was sure that God had to be a mechanical engineer. Why,
just study the perfect harmony of the human body’s movement and the way that the bones
fit	together;	and	how	the	muscles	and	ligatures	formed	the	perfect	pulley	system.	

The electrical engineer said no way was God a mechanical engineer. God must be an elec-
trical engineer. Just look at the way the central nervous system worked together with im-
pulses passing along and crossing synapses and besides without this marvelous electrical
feat the bones and muscles would not work.

Well, the civil engineer said that the one thing he did know was that God was NOT a civil
engineer, because no self-respecting civil engineer would have located the waste disposal
facilities next to the recreational facilities.

            Chi Epsilon Mourns the Loss of Dr. John A. Focht, Jr. P.E.,
                   the Society’s 55th National Honor Member

                                   John A. Focht, Jr., P.E., Hon.D.Ge, the 1990 president of
                            ASCE and 55th National Honor Member of Chi Epsilon, from
                            Houston, died at his home on October 22, 2010 at the age of
                            87. He was born in Rockwall, Texas, on August 31, 1923. Dr.
                            Focht received his bachelor of science in civil engineering in
                            1944 at the University of Texas at Austin, and served in the
                            U.S. Army during the occupation of Germany after WW II. He
                            earned a master’s degree in civil engineering in 1948 from Har-
                            vard University, studying under both Karl Terzaghi and Arthur
                            Casagrande. Subsequently, he served in Korea with the 434th
                            Engineering Battalion as a captain. When he left the U.S. Army
in 1953, he relocated to Houston and began working for the company that would become
McClelland Engineers. He was partly responsible for the company’s growth from a small
enterprise	to	a	multinational	firm	employing	more	than	800.		He	was	responsible	for	the	
design of major dams and the foundations of most of Houston’s tallest buildings. He also
participated	in	design	of	refineries,	port	facilities	and	NASA’s	Johnson	Space	Center.
         He received accolades for 5 of his more than 40 papers published and was chosen
to deliver the 1993 Karl Terzaghi Lecture. He was also honored with an award in recogni-
tion	of	his	service	as	founding	director	of	Civil	Engineering	Certificaton,	Inc.		The	profes-
sion and Chi Epsilon will miss his outstanding leadership and service.
