A Brief History

The firm was founded in October 1933 by Wesley Horner and Hymen Shifrin, both of whom had been previously employed by the City of St. Louis. In the years prior to the firm’s founding, Horner had made a name for himself nationally with his innovative proposition to bury the River des Peres in an effort to prevent further destruction caused by stormwater overflow and runoff.
