Summary Hiram Martin Chittenden was an influential figure in several regions of the American West in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Although little is known about his private life, his public career is well documented, for as a memeber of the Corps of Engineers of the United States Army, his life was devoted largely to public service. In this well-researched biography, Mr. Dodds shows that Chittenden was not only an innovative and indefatigable worker but also a realist who could cope with the mass of correspondence and reports and the pressures of politics attached to a federal agency working to reshape the face of America.
