Paul Séjourné


French civil engineer who specialized in the construction of large bridges from masonry, a domain in which he made some important innovations. While his contemporaries such as Gustav Eiffel resorted systematically to metalwork, Séjourné continued to design and build large span arch bridges in masonry until the end of the 1920s. Thereafter it became cheaper to build with concrete. He died on 19 January 1939 in Paris, aged 87.
