John Henry served two terms as the City Engineer of Los Angeles in 1890-1894 and 1896-1898. Also, he has served as a consulting engineer to the city governments of San Francisco and Oakland. John Henry and his brother Isidore B. Dockweiler were influential in Los Angeles history from the development of urban infrastructure to politics.
