Frank P. Moolin, Jr. (1934-1982) was the senior construction manager of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.
He graduated from the University of Chicago magna cum laude with an engineering degree.
Moolin worked on various projects including a refinery in Singapore and San Francisco's Bay Area Rapid Transit System. After finishing work on the pipeline, Moolin started a construction consulting company. He also served as chief executive officer for the conglomerate Alaska International Industries, and became a vice president of Western Airlines. He was awarded "Construction's Man of the Year" by Engineering News-Record magazine.
In 1982, he died of leukemia. Shortly before his death, he stated:
Perhaps I am being immodest, but I believe that in my career, I have accomplished many things. And foremost among them is the successful construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. I am confident that history will place the TAPS project among the highest technological achievements of engineering and construction. We had a very tough job to do, and we did it well.
