      Introducing Earl Ronneberg, national secretary, A.A.E.

      Earl F. Ronneberg graduated from the University of Illinois in Architectural-Engineering in 1929, just about the beginning of the depression , at which time he went to work in his father’s office. He attended John Marshall Law School in the evening for three years. Later he was employed by the United States Government as a special field agent in the Criminal Division, making investigations for many agencies that had been set up by the Roosevelt Administration.

      In 1939 he returned to his father’s office, and upon the death of his father, took over management of the office under the name of Earl F. Ronneberg doing business as N. Ronneberg Company. Since then he has directed the organization in the general practice of architecture, professional engineering and structural engineering. Sixty percent of his work is design of industrial buildings, including the mechanical, electrical, and frequently the general production layouts; twenty percent is as consulting engineer for many firms, other engineers and architects; the balance of his time is in the design of schools, apartment buildings, and all the other jobs which are inherent with general engineering practice.

      Earl holds registration in many states, as his work has often taken him out of the local environment. He is a Structural, Professional Engineer, and Architect in the State of Illinois; Architect and Engineer in the State of Indiana; Civil Engineer in California; Professional Engineer in Ohio, and also in New Jersey; Architect and Professional Engineer in Wisconsin; Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer in Michigan. He is a Member of the American Association of Engineers, American Society of Civil Engineers, and Illnois Society of Architects.

      Earl is married, has on daughter, three sons, and two grandchildren.

      Probably one of the most interesting things he will talk about is his attitude with respect to the engineering and architectural profession and the community in which he lives. It is his firm belief that every engineer and architect should take upon himself a civic duty. In this case, this has been a Boy Scout movement, as Cub-master for 17 years; Commissioner for 6 years; District Chairman of the largest Boy Scout district in the Chicago council for 3 years. In 1954 he was awarded the Vigil Honor of the Order of the Arrow. He has just finished his 35th year of continuous registration in Scouting, and is still active in this movement.

      As to hobbies, he has a very extensive stamp collection, and spends many yours on this hobby. Shortly after World War II, he took private flying lessons, purchased on of the first planes available to civilians, and accumulated over 2,000 hours of private fling time, logged primarily in going to and from out of town jobs.

      He always felt that it was also the engineer’s dudt to aid new graduates in the field in their work towards securing their licenses, and in the past years, nine men worked in his organization anywhere from five to ten years, and are now in business for themselves as registered architects or professional engineers.
