Irving Sherman – UC Berkeley, Class of 1941
Irving Sherman (“Irv”) was born in Portland, Oregon in 1919 and came with his family to Los Angeles in 1923. He grew up in Hollywood (was at Hollywood High School with Lana Turner) and then attended both UCLA and Cal, becoming a member of the class of 1941.
He spent several years working for the Federal government, but in 1953 he moved to the Los Angeles County Flood Control District, from which he retired in 1980 as the division head of the Water Conservation Division. He also joined the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) after he became a Registered Civil Engineer in California in 1954. He became active in ASCE locally and rose to become President of the 11-County Los Angeles Section.
After his first retirement, Irv found himself in business as a consulting civil and geotechnical engineer, which he did for 25 years before retiring permanently. He lived in the San Fernando Valley from 1950 to 2015, and now lives in Newport Beach in the beautiful home of Lu Jenkins. Irv first met Lu in 1974 in Yugoslavia! Irv is a widower with one surviving son, two grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
Irv will turn 100 years young in February of 2019.
