As a pioneer in innovative uses of concrete, Purdue civil engineer Charles Pankow shaped the development of the modern construction industry and the landscape of 20th century America. His philanthropy also continues to advance Purdue, impacting professors and students throughout the university via the support of the Charles Pankow Foundation. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the Pankow Companies and the Libraries are marking this with an online exhibition that showcases the donation of Pankow papers and oral histories to the growing civil engineering collection and a companion book, A Better Way to Build, published under the Purdue University Press imprint as a hardback print and e-book edition.
