This chapter describes events following the death of chief engineer Clifford Holland on October 27, 1924. Many professional societies, civic organizations, and prominent citizens expressed to the tunnel commissions their desire that some special honor be given Holland in recognition of his dedication and sacrifice. At meetings held on November 12, 1924, both commissions resolved that the new designation “The Holland Tunnel” be adopted for the facility. Milton Freeman, who had been acting chief engineer since Holland's mental breakdown, now directed the project. The remainder of the chapter details events that occurred during the construction of the tunnel.
