In 1920, Olive Wetzel Dennis became only the second woman to obtain a Civil Engineering degree from Cornell. She was also first female member of the American Railway Engineering Association, and a few of her many innovations included seats that could partially recline; ceiling lights that could be dimmed at night, and air conditioned compartments. Other rail carriers followed suit, and buses and airlines then had to upgrade their level of comfort in order to compete with the railroads.

Beatrice Hicks (1919-1979) was the co-founder and first president of the Society of Women Engineers, and the first female engineer hired by Western Electric. She became an important pioneering figure in a male-dominated field of science. She graduated in 1939 as one of only two women in a class of engineers. While working for Newark Controls Company, she developed a gas density switch that was later used in the US space programme.

As part of our ongoing women’s history month posting today we feature Beatrice Alice Hicks, engineer and activist who spent much of her life encouraging other women to become engineers.
