I was fortunate in being able to make the Panama trip as one of the A. I. E. E. party which sailed from New York last January 17th, joining the New Orleans contingent upon our arrival at Colon January 25th. Here we were greeted by the receiving party composed of Colonel Seibert, a member of the Canal Commission and in charge of the Atlantic Division of the work, Mr. Schildhauer, the electrical and mechanical engineer of the Commission, and Messrs. Cornish and Kratz, engineers of the Canal Commission.
