Henry Jackson Burt, nationally prominent consulting entineer and former resident of Wilmette, died at his home in Wheaton early Saturday morning, July 28, after an illness of a year. His death was due to cerebral hemmorhage and paralysis. The Wheaton Masonic lodge conducted services Monday afternoon, August 30, at the family home, 416 Ellis avenue. Burial was at Wheaton.

Mr. Burt was born February 6, 1873, at Urbana. He was graduated from the University of Illinois in 1896 with the degree of Bachelor of Science and awarded the degree of civil engineer in 1914. During the time he attended school he was engaged in mapping and modeling a relief map of Illinois for the Columbian Exposition. For several years he was a designer of structural steel, then a professor of civil engineering at Iowa State college. About this time, in 1901, occurred his marriage to Edith Fleming of Champaign.
