ASCE State of the Art of Civil Engineering Award
Because the science and art of civil engineering can cope with information expansion only if its most gifted practitioners will review and interpret the state-of-the-art for the benefit of their colleagues, in 1966 the professional associates of John D. Winter, M.ASCE, endowed this prize. It is anticipated that a direct benefit of this award will be the scholarly review, evaluation, and documents of the scientific and technical information needed by the profession.
