AbstractThis article discusses how engineering was naturalized by engineers and corporate and civic patrons in Chicago in the 1960's as an occupation distinct from technicians and shop-floor workers. The author discusses how, during these years of the civil rights movement, this hierarchical organization helped keep Chicago's workforce racially stratified.
