Transportation Seminar – October 6th

Dr. Bill Sproule, Professor Emeritus, Civil, Environmental, and Geospatial Engineering


Abstract: World Fairs have been forgotten by most who live in North America because the last one was held in 1986 in Vancouver, Canada. However, they are still being held in other countries on specific themes. The 20th Century World’s Fairs were major events celebrated in the host city and the world, and transportation exhibits and projects were always a popular feature of these expositions. The presentation will explore the history of World’s Fairs and the transportation innovations that have amazed Fair attendees through the years.

Bio: Dr. Bill Sproule is a Professor Emeritus at Michigan Technological University, where he taught and directed research projects in transportation engineering, traffic safety, public transit, airport planning and design, and hockey history for almost 25 years. He has been active in several professional associations including ASCE, ITE, TRB, the American Planning Association, and the Society for International Hockey Research. Bill retired five years ago but has continued his work in automated people movers and hockey history.
