Abstract/Summary While the Eiffel Tower has become a landmark of Paris and France, few know about the names of 72 scientists engraved around the first floor. Herein, the names of 14 hydraulic engineers and scholars are reviewed and their selection is discussed. It is shown that most were leading engineers and lecturers during the French Revolution and early 19th century, and Gustave Eiffel's selection highlighted the influence of leading engineers on the French Society.
