Reginald Bing-Wo — Engineer

I would venture to say that not many have heard this gentleman’s name. At 96 years of age, his list of accomplishments is incredible — and all achieved in the face of the insidious racism that permeated Western society throughout his lifetime.  One of his engineering credits is helping to design the Gardiner Dam.  As 2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the completion of the dam, this story becomes as timely as my previous Cutbank article.

The Leader Post has published a piece on Mr. Bing-Wo.
