Arthur S. Horner (1952)

Kansas native Arthur S. Horner graduated from the University of Colorado in 1922. With a degree in civil engineering, he entered the construction field and founded his own firm in Denver, A.S. Horner Construction, soon after. A builder of bridges, viaducts, underpasses, reservoirs, sewage projects, industrial plants and more, Horner’s career cap has many feathers – including participation in the construction of the 23-mile Roberts Tunnel, which brought Western slope water to Denver, and some 10 bridges on the site of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. He was one of very few men to serve multiple terms as the president of the Colorado Contractors’ Association and a lifetime member of both the Colorado Society of Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
