Herbert S. Fairbank

Herbert S. Fairbank, referred to by colleagues as Jack, worked for the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads under Roy W. Crum Award by the Highway Research Board for outstanding achievement in highway research. In 1957 he was the first recipient of the Thomas H. MacDonald Award for outstanding contributions to highway progress.[1]

On May 5, 1983, Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole and Federal Highway Administrator Ray Barnhart were part of a ceremony dedicating the Francis C. Turner Building. The research center was renamed the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center.[1]
