H. C. Bingner is a representative business man of Johnstown, where he is prominent as a member of the firm of
McClure & Bingner Company, Inc., constructing engineers, with offices in the U. S. Bank Building. He was born
in 1893, completed his early schooling in 1909, and was graduated from the University of Illinois in 1913 as a
civil and mining engineer. He was appointed to a position with the field forces of the Federal Bureau of Geodetic
Surveys, and resigned from this position after one year to accept a position with the Gugenheimer Corporation,
London, England, who were then doing research and development work in South America for the British Government.
He remained in South America with this company until the work was stopped due to England's activity in the World
war. Mr. Bingner then returned to the United States and entered into private practice of his profession, doing
considerable research and development work for the Western Kentucky Coal Company and other interests. He engineered
the first section of hard surface road built by the Pennsylvania State Highway Department, and followed engineering
and construction work until the United States entered the World war.
During the World war Mr. Bingner was appointed a first lieutenant in the Engineer Corps of the United States Army,
and appointed captain in the sane corps while serving with the Expeditionary Forces. After the close of the war
he resumed his private practice until 1920, when the present company was organized.
McClure & Bingner Company, Inc., was incorporated in April, 1922, and has since been following engineering
and general construction work, building some of the prominent highways in Central Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Mr. Roderick McClure is president, and Mr. Bingner is secretary treasurer and chief engineer.
