Abstract:
Describes the San Jacinto Memorial tower, an OC-agonalshaft 570 f t high of reinforced concrete faced with stone. Construction details including use of stone facing for outside form are discussed. A large 34-ft hiqh star of structural steel, concrete, and stone on the top of the shaft, presented unique construction problems which were overcome by a special mast and boom, taken up and removed in-side the tower, and 90 ft of tubular tower erected on cantilever beams outside the main tower.
