Front Cover
Oregon State University Press, 2001 - Architecture - 211 pages
"McCullough's legacy lies in the nearly six hundred bridges he designed and built in Oregon during the years between the two world wars, most notably several beautiful bridges along the Oregon Coast Hightway, bridges he called "jeweled clasps in a wonderful string of pearls." Trained as a civil engineer, McCullough was drawn to Oregon by the state's need for bridges and its drive to "lift its feet out of the winter's mud and summer's dust." After developing the engineering program at Oregon Agricultural College (now Oregon State University), McCullough was named the state's bridge engineer. His long career with the State Highway Department left a legacy of bridge building in Oregon unequaled in the twentieth century."
