Morrison Hershfield's 75th Anniversary

Seventy-five years ago, three university professors and an established consulting engineer decided to form the engineering practice that is now Morrison Hershfield.

MH-75thLogo_ColorCarson Morrison, Charlie Hershfield and Mark Huggins were all engineering professors at the University of Toronto.  Joe Millman ran an established mechanical engineering practice.  Beginning in early February and over the ensuing months of 1946, the four pooled their respective talents to form a partnership offering civil, structural and mechanical engineering services, called Morrison, Hershfield, Millman & Huggins – Consulting Engineers. 

The beginning of February marks the diamond anniversary of our storied firm.  Seventy-five years have passed, but some things have remained the same.  The high standards set by our founders established our Core Values and Principles for dealing with the public, our clients and each other.  These are the values our staff demonstrate each day.

After over 75 years in business, Morrison Hershfield has so much to be proud of and a great deal to be thankful for. We are fortunate to have developed relationships with many outstanding clients over the years and privileged to have partnered with a myriad of exceptional firms on a wide range of projects.

We look forward with optimism, confidence and determination to meet the challenges of the future and realize the possibilities that lay ahead.  We are celebrating our first 75 years, and will continue to shape the next 75 and beyond.


Morrison Hershfield is a market leading, employee-owned professional engineering and management firm that has been making a difference since 1946. We deliver technically sophisticated, cost effective and sustainable infrastructure solutions across the globe.
