THE DEPARTMENT ORGANIZATION
At the beginning of the year the total number of employees in the department was 122, including executive staff engineers, draftsmen, photographers, surveyors, inspectors and clerks. The authorization by Councils of the construction of all the new highspeed lines, both subway and elevated, and the approval by the voters of the loan, which included $57,100,000 for transit development, called for energetic prosecution of the department's work, and considerable expansion of its working force.
On May 22d Mr. Frank R. Fisher, who had been Resident Engineer in charge of the construction of the Market Street Subway, was appointed Engineer of Subway Construction, and he organized a force of assistant engineers, surveyors and inspectors for laying out and supervising the construction of all the subways to be built by the department. The Subway Division offices are on the eleventh floor of the Finance Building.
The available supply in this city of eligible engineers and draftsmen experienced in subway and elevated design and construction was soon found by the Civil Service Commission to be limited, and, therefore, in order to obtain the required number of skilled men, the usual requirement of Philadelphia residence was waived in the cases of engineers and the higher grades of draftsmen, and a very efficient force of competent men was soon built up.
