Gustave Eiffel
December 15

A man best known for structures such as his tower constructed at the 1889 World's Fair in Paris, French engineer Gustave Eiffel was born on this day in 1832. His 'Eiffel Tower', an impressive structure at over 984 feet in height, was the tallest structure in the world for over forty years until completion of the Chrysler Building in New York City. Recognized around the world, the Eiffel Tower stands today as a graceful example of engineered beauty and design.
