ABOUT US:   The Engineers' Club of Memphis, organized on May 8, 1914, is a nonsectarian, nonpolitical, and nonprofit society whose objectives and purposes are to promote the educational and professional improvement of its members, to advance the field of engineering in its several branches, to make available to the general public technical and scientific information and knowledge, and generally to aid in the solution of public questions involving engineering and scientific problems. In the furtherance of these goals, the Club strives through its various committees to develop and plan ongoing educational programs, seminars, symposiums, professional tours, and other technically oriented meetings, events and projects.

Charles A. Montague The Club mournes the loss of long time Life Member Charles (Charlie) Montague. Charlie passed away on June 26, 2020 at The Village at Germantown with his family by his side. He was born April 30, 1928 in Ripley, TN. Upon graduating from Ripley High School in 1946, he joined the U.S. Army and was stationed in Tokyo, Japan. In late 1947, Sgt. Montague returned to the U.S. and attended the University of Tennessee while serving in the U.S. Air Force R.O.T.C. He graduated with a civil engineering degree in 1951. Following his Air Force service, Charlie returned to Memphis and was employed by Buckeye Cellulose Corporation in the engineering department. This began a 40+ year career with Buckeye that culminated with his role as Director of North American Sales for Chemical Cellulose. He joined the Engineers Club in 1978 and was an active member until his retirement. He is a Life Member. Our sympathies go out to the family and his many friends. He will be sorely missed. Go in peace, Charlie, Go in peace.
