Summary
The Panama Canal, one of the wonders of the modern world, ranks among the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century. This program spotlights William Gorgas and John Stevens -- only two of the legions who worked on the project, but who stand out, even a century later, for their extraordinary achievements in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Dr. Gorgas is remembered for his success in controlling malaria and yellow fever in the region, while chief engineer Stevens is known for having built the infrastructure necessary to complete the canal and maintain the sanitation measures of Gorgas
