Builders of Gateway Arch sections to tour monument

A contingent of about a dozen men who worked as Boilermakers to construct sections of the Gateway Arch in the 1960s will visit the national monument in St. Louis Nov. 15. For some, it will be the first time they’ve seen the Arch in person.

Nearly a half century ago, the men — many in their 20s and 30s during the Arch’s construction — worked in the Warren, Pa., steel fabrication plant owned by Pittsburgh-Des Moines, Inc., a renowned builder of bridges, tanks, missile silos, and other projects.
