Mr. F. B. Gilbreth, contractor for architectural and engineering construction, will give an illustrated lecture before the Engineering Society this evening at 8 o'clock, in Pierce 110 on "System and Organization in a Contractor's Work." The illustrations will show systematized attempts at organization in works of building and engineering. Mr. Gilbreth will include in his lecture a plan of a school building covering an acre that was built in two months and seventeen days. He will also describe the organization process used in building the town of Woodland, Maine, which includes a dam 2000 feet long, machine shops, railroads, paper, sulphide, and ground pulp mills.
The lecture will be open to the public.
