First Lieutenant John N. Hodges served as District Engineer for less than 2 months in February and March 1912 when Lieutenant Colonel Shunk suffered health problems. Hodges had one of the shortest tenures as a District Engineer at St. Paul and was the only First Lieutenant to head the District – a situation necessitated by a limit on the number of officers in the Corps of Engineers.
