History

CDM was founded as a partnership in 1947 by Thomas R. Camp, Herman G. Dresser, and Jack E. McKee. Dr. Camp headed the department of sanitary engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology before leaving the university to set up a consulting practice. Dedicated to public health protection, he pioneered water treatment technologies such as dual-media filters and direct filtration for public water supplies. While Dr. Camp set the standard of technical excellence for CDM, Mr. Dresser established the tone and business practices of the firm, emphasizing the importance of employee development across all disciplines. Dr. McKee made professional contributions in water quality protection, groundwater recharge, and engineering education. He left the firm in 1949 to become a professor at the California Institute of Technology, later rejoining CDM on a part-time basis.
