The Structural Engineer in America. His Place and Influence

IN 1883 the first edition of Kidder’s Architects’ and Builders’ Handbook appeared. It was then called a pocket-book, and could be carried in a coat pocket of ordinary size. The seventeenth edition, 1921, is more than three times as thick, although it is printed on thinner paper in smaller type. In the 1906 edition the following statement, appeared in the Preface: “At the time the first edition was written, the term ‘Architectural Engineering’ had not been used in the present application, and the term ‘Structural Engineering,’ when used, referred almost exclusively to bridge work."
