December 29, 1992|By Staff Report

Charles Frederick Millard, who worked as a project engineer for Whitman Requardt and Associates, died Dec. 20 of cardiac arrest at Good Samaritan Hospital. He was 75.

Born in Dunmore, Pa., in 1917, he earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Bucknell University in 1940.

During World War II, he served with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the European and Asian theaters. After the war, he worked for the Corps of Engineers, the East Bay Municipal Utilities District in Oakland, Calif., the Pennsylvania Department of Highways and private engineering firms in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

In 1950, he joined Whitman Requardt and Associates in Baltimore as a structural engineer. At Whitman, he became a project engineer and associate engineer before becoming a partner in 1965. As a partner, he was in charge of the firm's structural and architectural practice. He oversaw the design and construction administration of graving docks for the Bethlehem Steel Co. in Baltimore and the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. in Newport News, Va. When completed, the Newport News graving dock was the largest in the United States.

Mr. Millard also helped design the Bay Model Shelter for the Corps of Engineers and the western approaches to Interstate 95's Fort McHenry Tunnel.

After retiring from Whitman in 1982, Mr. Millard lived in Lutherville with his wife, the former Grace Richards of Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Services were conducted Dec. 23.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a son, Richard Charles Millard of Richmond, Va.; a daughter, Jane Millard Dean of Monkton; a sister, Elizabeth Kerr of Lutherville; a brother, Edward Millard of Phoenix, Md.; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. The family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Trinity Episcopal Church, 120 W. Allegheny Ave., in Towson.
