1. The Mehlburger Markers
Inscription.  A line of precise reference surveying markers known as the “Mehlburger Markers” was established in memory of the man who pioneered efforts to license land surveyors in the State of Arkansas and was awarded Land Surveyor Certificate No. 1. Max A. Mehlburger, who was born in Fort Smith in 1900 and received a B.S.C.E. from the University of Arkansas in 1927, was also a leading professional engineer, having served with highway departments, consulting engineers, and construction companies in several states prior to 1937 when he returned to his native Arkansas as Engineering Commissioner for the State Department of Public Utilities. In 1942, he established his own successful firm, Mehlburger Engineering, Inc.

This trail of markers is a tribute from those who wish others to be aware of this life of service.
