Caretakers and Change Makers: The Nine Leaders Who Built the Transportation Research Board


A featured article in the November-December 2014 issue of TR News examines the contributions of the nine TRB Executive Directors, including Robert E. Skinner, Jr., who retired in January 2015 after 21 years at TRB’s helm. These nine individuals—engineers all—have shared a strong commitment to TRB and its mission, and each has contributed to shaping the institution.
