Biographies

FW Furkert

Provision is made here for the recording of biographies of engineers who have made a significant contribution to the development of the country.

Engineering biographies may be submitted for inclusion in the database.  They should be of limited length (preferably no more than a thousand words) and the name of the author or source listed.  Where other publicly available sources exist (such as in the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography) these should be referenced and a link provided if on another website.  One photo of the engineer described would be valuable.
