- \10.5.1853 Liège/B - 2.1.1927 Ostende/B\Edouard de Cuyper, son of Charles (1811-1892), graduated in 1878 from the Ecole des Mines of Liège, where his father was a hydraulics professor. Edouard's career started as a mining engineer in Brussels, and then from 1881 in Ostende at the Channel coast where he remained for the rest of his life. He was involved in the design of railways that connected the cities along the sea but also in maritime installations and in water supply works for his home town. His 1890 book gives an outline for that project, of which de Cuyper made the design and thus significantly contributed to the wealth of the city.\De Cuyper was awarded the Order of the Crown, was an Officer of the Order of Leopold, was decorated with the Civil Cross of the first class for his services towards ill persons, and was a Commander of the Order of the Lion and the Sun of Persia.\Cuyper, E. de (1890).
