    (December 15, 1832-December 27, 1923)
    Birth name was Alexandre Gustave Eiffel
    Built the Eiffel Tower (completed March 31, 1889), the tallest structure in the world (984¼ feet, 1889-1930)
    Built French railways and bridges
    Worked with Auguste Bartholdi and Richard M. Hunt to create the Statue of Liberty
    Consultant in the building of the church of Notre Dame Des Champs
    His two most famous structures, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty have no real function.
    He originally intended on making a career at his uncle's vinegar plant, but a family argument changed his plans.
    Some artists protested the Eiffel Tower, saying that his system of mass production (of the pieces) will eventually obliterate individuality.
    The Eiffel Tower was built in honor of the 100th-anniversary of the French Revolution (1889).
    His unique understanding of math and science helped him reduce costs on his projects.
    He was a graduate of the Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures (Paris - 1855).
    His tower gave people a view from a height they've never imagined possible.
    Posthumously, his concepts of putting a tunnel under the English Channel and a subway system underneath Paris came into reality.
