History: Leon Moisseiff

Who Is Leon Moisseiff

Leon Moisseiff was born in Riga, Latvia, he arrived in the United States at the age of 19 and within five years received a degree in civil engineering from Columbia University. He first gained renown as one of the designers of the Manhattan Bridge, which spans the East River connecting Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bridge opened on December 31, 1909 and was highly touted for its innovative design and for employing Josef Melan's deflection theory for the stiffening of its deck. The Manhattan Bridge was also the first suspension bridge to utilize a Warren Truss in its design. Leon's Bridge design theories were applied to the now iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, which was completed in 1937 where he served as a consultant in the project.
