company was originally formed in 1945, by Howard R. Blankenbeker,
as a sole proprietorship. He worked mostly out of his house
on Allison Lane in Jeffersonville, for his private practice.
Times being what they were in those days, he also spent a lot
of time employed in public works projects with the Jeffersonville
Flood Control District, the Indiana State Highway Department,
the Charlestown Powder Plant and various other public agencies.
In the early sixties, Rollyn H. Blankenbeker, his son, joined
the practice and in 1965 the firm was re-formed as H.R. Blankenbeker
& Son Registered Land Surveyors. In 1974, Howard died and Rollyn
became sole proprietor. In 1985 Rollyn's son, David R. Blankenbeker,
joined the company and in 1990 the present corporation was formed.
Rollyn died in December of 1994, leaving David as the sole owner
