Engineers News and Archives

OE3 makes copies of the monthly Engineers News publications available to the public through oe3.org. These include current editions as well as archives commencing from March 1943. The publications are merely digital duplicates of past Engineers News publications, and do not represent or reflect the opinions or positions of any employees, officers, affiliates or agents of OE3, or OE3 as an organization.

The publications are reproduced digitally in their entirety. The only exception pertains to the archival issues originally published by OE3 and IUOE Local 39 jointly, which can be identified by the reference to Local 39 on the front page of the particular issue. Because this digital reproduction is solely a project of OE3, OE3 has removed the pages of the Engineers News dedicated to Local 39 in such issues. All disclaimers and other provisions provided in these Terms of Use apply to the Engineers News and Archives section and the contents therein.
