"Probably no material in use by the Engineering profession at the present time has been subjected to more careful and rigid tests by expert Engineers than our hydraulic cements, both natural and artificial. While the manufacturer and use of cements in America is of comparatively recent origin, this industry is fast assuming enormous proportions, and the use of cement is fast displacing many of our more common building materials. Its use in our more important structures has created an increasing demand for the best quality of cements, and the manufacturers have not been slow to comply with this demand" – p. [1].
