Frank P. Davidson: 1918-2014

After a lifetime of making history, Frank P. Davidson has entered history. Founder of the field of macro engineering, credited with building of the Channel Tunnel, hero celebrated for service in Normandy and featured in the Juno Beach Centre museum, Frank Davidson was awarded the title of Chevalier in the French Legion of Honor. When just 22, Davidson requested a meeting with United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt to propose founding a Civilian Conservation Corps camp devoted to diversity, where students of all backgrounds could work together. Camp William James was named after the author of “The Moral Equivalent of War” with recognition that preserving and honoring the environment might be a path to peace.
