David Barker Rushmore – 

  • May 23, 1921 – David B. Rushmore (GE – Head of Power and Mining Department) to L. F. Gebhardt (American Society for Mechanical Engineers, NYC) re: about qualifications of JSA for membership; “Previous to his coming with this company he had an unusual experience in charge of a large construction force on railroad work in Virginia, where he handled gangs of four or five hundred men and had shown himself unusually competent in this regard. I can vouch personally for Mr. Apperson being a man of unusual ability and intelligence and fully qualified, in my judgment, to be a member of the American Society for Mechanical Engineers.”
