CH2M HILL was founded in January 1946 in
Corvallis, Oregon, as CH2M-a name derived from the initials of
the company's four founders: Fred Merryfield, Holly Cornell,
James Howland, and T. Burke Hayes. Some 25 years
later, the company merged with Clair A. Hill and Associates
to form CH2M HILL.
The idea for CH2M HILL began to grow in
the mid-1930s as the three Oregon State College students - Cornell,
Howland, and Hayes - came under the influence of their tremendously
enthusiastic civil engineering professor, Fred Merryfield. Merryfield
remained quite active with his students outside the classroom,
and used that environment to plant the seed for an engineering
partnership. After graduation and throughout World War II, Merryfield
and his students maintained an active dialogue about a potential
partnership. The post-war economy was ripe for qualified, experienced
engineers, and Merryfield, Cornell, Howland, and Hayes were ready
and eager to fill that need. With their complementary skills
and temperaments, these four men provided the backbone and direction
of the firm.
The goals of these founders were simple.
Find clients who needed engineering or consulting solutions for
their problems; solve those problems with technology, creativity,
and ingenuity; find more clients and more projects; hire creative,
bright people to deliver the work; and then share the benefits
