Collection Overview

Title: Thomas Berry Papers: Project Histories, 1927-1984

ID: 5/502/9B

Creator: Berry, Thomas (1954-)

Extent: 0.0

Arrangement: Printouts of the Project Histories are arranged in a binder on the bookcase in parallel by year and by state, then by the serial number Mr. Berry assigned to each project. The digital form of these records is to be considered the most current.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection contains the results of research into hundreds of construction projects to document estimated dates of construction, major identifiable equipment used on them, statistics, and often the name(s) of the contractor(s).

Due to the problems posed by hundreds of entries containing a great deal of like information, the catalog contains only the descriptive information for each project, and indexes of significant equipment used on them. The projects and equipment indexes are arranged into groups by decade. Lists of major equipment, to varying levels of detail, used on the projects are available on request.

The data is compiled from trade journals, especially Roads & Streets, Pacific Builder & Engineer, California Builder & Engineer, Western Construction, Contractors & Engineers, and Pacific Road Builder & Engineering Review, and from sales literature. Emphasis is on the western states, especially California and the Pacific Northwest.

The projects are dated by the year in which the contract for the project was awarded. The date span is from c. 1927 through the early 1980s, by which time most trade journals had ceased the detailed coverage of major projects that provided the information for this research. The data is arranged into groups and series by year, as indicated in the date ranges of the groups and series.

Projects are cited here and in cross-references elsewhere in the database by year and project number; a reference elsewhere to this material will read, “Berry project reference year 19## Project ###.” The title for each project is a brief description of the work, its location and, where known, the contractor. The contractor’s name will be set off by a hyphen from the rest of the title. The description for each project expands on this information where needed and contains a list of the major equipment that the source documents listed for the project. Some projects shared a common list of equipment, and some projects – in some cases decades apart – were built on the same locale.

Several things should be borne in mind when researching this material:

• Structures described herein, including highways, dams and bridges, are occasionally renamed or renumbered. For example, California and Washington renumbered their state highways in 1963 and 1964. In California’s case, the new numbers are cited for all projects, where known. In most others, old and new names are given where known.

• US highways are indicated by a US prefix, and Interstates by a hyphenated I- prefix.

• States used various prefixes to identify their highways. For example, Washington used PSH (Primary State Highway) and SSH (Secondary State Highway) prefixes until the 1963-1964 renumbering. For sake of simplicity, all state highways are identified herein by a SR prefix.

• It is not uncommon for more than one highway number to be assigned to a given section of road. All known numbers are indicated.

• Actual equipment assignments to a typical job tended to be subject to change, and equipment was usually added to or removed from the job as work demanded. Dates for these changes are usually approximate.

• The equipment lists presented herein are believed to be often incomplete, or to be representative of what was in use only at a given time on each project.
