In January 1913, W. K. Hatt, head of the School of Civil Engineering issued a call for a Civil Engineering Conference to cover the needs of county surveyors and city engineers. Roads and streets were heavily involved. A similar conference was held in 1914 at which a resolution was passed which called for a provision in the laws of Indiana that there be a yearly School of Good Roads. In 1915, the name of the Civil Engineering Conference was changed to the Purdue Road School.
