Hard Hat Construction Who you gonna' call? Joe Curtin Joe Curtin (1915-2000) was a hobo, a deep sea diver, a steam fitter, a pile-driver, a self-educated man, an adventurer and, in his words, "A Construction Stiff." His memoirs bring to life the arduous times of the Depression along with a great appreciation for an honest work ethic. A Washington, D.C. native of Irish descent, Joe worked on the first Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the St. Lawrence Seaway, The Raeburn Legislative Office Building, and scores of other jobs, including the building of a necessary supply line in Cam Rahn Bay, Vietnam. Any hard working American would appreciate all that Joe accomplished. Anyone not knowing him, would probably think this book is fiction.
