In Memory of Harry Fogle: Bridge Pioneer
Posted by Tasha Weiss on March 15, 2011 at 8:57 AM.

Harry Fogle, a remarkable bridge pioneer who was one of the last surviving workers on both the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay Bridge, died of natural causes on February 18 at the age of 97.


A bridge painter and foreman for more than 40 years who was a survivor of an era when men worked without nets high above the San Francisco Bay, the National Steel Bridge Alliance featured his lustrous career in its September 2010 newsletter.
