DEAN OF ENGINEERS, WHO BUILT
MANY DIFICULT UNDERTAKINGS
RETIRES TO OFFICE OF HIS OWN
Mr. HoQd's Life History is His
tory of Expansion Southern

PAX FRANCISCO. May 23. (A. IM
Because there arc no more great
railroad construction problems to
tackle, William Hood, chle'f engineer
of the Southern Pacific Company and
dean of his profession In tho United
States, tiring, of office routine, retired
Muy t, one the fifty-fourth annivers
ary of his first connection with the
MV. Hood's life history Is the his
tory ,.f the expansion of the Southern
Pacific lines over great stretches of
the west. Ho put the road ucross the
difficult Tehachulpl Toss in California,
bu'lt the greut Lucln cut-oft across
the Great Salt Lake, conceived an "S"
line to cross the Siskiyou mountains
between California and Oregon, con
tdructed the 'Dumbarton cut-off across
lov.er San Franojsco Bay and com
pleted a line between San Diego and
Almost every one of ffio eleven
thousand miles of the Southern I'
clfle syMem was covered by Mr. Illood
on foot before the nils were laid. - All
his work was done In the open. Now,
with no more lakes to bridge and no
mere mountains to tunnel, Mr. Hood
decided to leave his office post, with
its "unit cost" discussions and the line
unj, at the age of 75. to open his own
office. He Is not retiring because of
his ar.e or of falling health, for he Is
m active and vigorous as a man much
torn, the project was completed In lit
tle in rc than a year. An average ot
l.Hn foet ot roadbed was completed
The crowing of the Siskiyou was an
other prol.lem solved by Mr. Hood.
His "S'' line crosses the Sacramento
river eighteen times and passes
through f.ixteen tunnels, one 3,000 feet
long. The construction of the line be
tween San Diego and Arixona involved
cutting through Carriso Gorge.
One of his greatest feats was con
struction of the Dumbarton cut-off, a
line which eliminates a freight haul of

Back In the pioneer days of 1867,
Mr. Hood Joined the Central Pacific
after having been mustered out of the
t'nion Army at the close of the Civil
War end having cut short his college
work at Dartmouth. He soon became
chief assistant engineer and in the
last seventies built the Tehachaipi loop j
and -sent the road to Los Angeles. To
"make distance" for a gradual slope,
Mr. Hood twisted his line hi a down
slanting loop completely around one of
the rtaks, completing the circles of
seven-tenths of a mile when the track
crcsscd Its starting point in a tunnel
J7 feet below the upper level.
.'.ater' when the Southen Pacific
winted to get across the Salt Lake,
Mr. Hood decided the cut-off could be
built at a practicable cost, despite oth
er views held by other engineers. He
decided to cover eleven miles of the
lake with a trestle and rear a solid
ridge of ce.rlh across the rest of it.
