Edward Sargent Shaw (October 26, 1853[1] – October 3, 1919[2]) was a prominent civil engineer who lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[3][4] Born on October 26, 1853, he spent most of his life in Cambridge, and graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering in the class of 1874; his thesis being a design for a Murphy-Whipple truss bridge.[5] Immediately following graduation he continued his studies in some non-degree capacity at his alma mater.[6] During his professional career, his office was located in Boston, Massachusetts.[7] He died of heart failure at the age of 65, on October 3, 1919.[3]

Shaw was responsible for a number of bridges in New England, including:

Shaw also held at least 3 patents, including one for the draw bridge, one for a railway superstructure design, and even a design for an electric locomotive. It is unknown if these designs were implemented in any capacity in his work.
