Of the many photo experiences, ones that really struck me were the beautiful coastal bridges in Central Oregon. Much of this beauty was created by Conde McCullough. Mr. McCullough was the embodiment of the “American dream”. Born in South Dakota in 1887, Conde supported his family after the premature death of his father, but still managed to get a civil engineering degree at the age of 23. He worked for a bridge company in Iowa for a year prior to taking a position with the Oregon Agricultural College. In 1919 he took a position as head of the bridge division of the Oregon Department of Transportation. This was a good time because highway 101, the coastal route, was being created.
During his career, he designed a substantial number of beautiful bridges, many featuring Gothic, Art Deco, and Romanesque features that added to the beauty of his bridges.
