The Ferris Wheel was designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. , a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He was a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania bridge-builder. He began his career in the railroad industry and then pursued an interest in bridge building. Ferris understood the growing need for structural steel and founded G. W. G. Ferris & Co. in Pittsburgh, a firm that tested and inspected metals for railroads and bridge builders.
