Title John Lucien Savage
Description One of the most fitting tributes ever paid Mr. Savage comes from the citation given him when he received the John Fritz Medal: <"From time to time there appears on the engineering stage a personality that commands attention as outstanding in his field. his qualities of heart and mind are unusual. His deed speaks louder than his words, and he is likely to be inordinately modest. The accomplishments of such a man mark him as a great not only in the sum total of his efforts, but also in... Internationally renowned engineer who designed billions of dollars worth of dams including the Coulee, Shasta, and Boulder Dams. He assisted in the construction of numerous projects abroad including advising on and the designing of the Upper Yarra Dam and Kiewa Dam in the State of Victoria, Australia and the Ichang Dam on the Yangtze River Gorge Project.
