    Plaque honors Golden Gate bridge designer

    Paul Giroux (left), a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, presents a commemorative plaque to Fred Apsey, a 1941 civil engineering alumnus, on Nov. 21. The plaque is a replica of one installed at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco to honor Charles A. Ellis, the late Purdue alumnus and professor who designed the bridge. Until recently, Ellis had not received credit for his pivotal role in the project. The replica will be installed in Hampton Hall of Civil Engineering. Apsey, one of Ellis’ former students, also announced a $250,000 gift to fund civil engineering scholarships to honor Ellis. Photo by Steven Yang.
