Peter Engelmann (1924-2008) arrived in the United States in 1945. At the age of 21, he had already experienced two revolutions: one in Germany, where he was born, when Hitler began to destroy Europe; the other in Turkey, where Kemel Ataturk was building a modern republic on the German government bank in 1933, upon Hitler's rise to power. The family arrived in Turkey in 1936, when his father became a financial advisor to the government in shipping and harbor administration. Peter had attended an American college in Istanbul, and was now headed for graduate study at M.I.T..
Soon after his arrival here, he was drafted and sent back to Germany to join the occupation forces. After being discharged, he completed his studies under the G.I. Bill, and spent 17 years working as a civil engineer in designing industrial and transportation projects with consulting firms in New York. He worked for the U.S. Department of Commerce on the Northeast Corridor Study (Washington-Boston) in 1963 and 1964.
Peter moved to the Washington area in 1964 and joined the staff of the World Bank. During 20 years with that organization, he held various positions and traveled widely in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, assisting in the planning and financing of development projects.
After retiring in 1984, he formed a small consulting firm with six former colleagues and continued providing advisory services on pre-investment work for urban and transportation infrastructure projects in Latin America and the Caribbean until 1999.
He then fully retired, painting geometric abstracts in oil and writing his story for his two children and four grandchildren in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Peter died in 2004.
