Earle Morton Rader (November 6, 1899 - February 4, 1989) was an American engineer. Born in St. Augustine, Florida, and the son oaf a Methodist preacher, Rader's family moved to Miami before he was a year old. He attended the Trial-State College of Engineering in Indiana and graduated in 1921. After graduating, he worked in Montana and then Missouri designing roads and highways. In 1924, he returned to Miami and became the City Engineer. He held that position until 1940, when he resigned to become a consultant. In 1942, however, he became county engineer, after Dade County began building the Rickenbacker Causeway. Rader left the county engineering job in 1948 and founded his own firm, Rader Engineering, which would later be known as Rader and Associates. While the firm was in operation, it designed modern shipping facilities for the port of Manila, highways in Ecuador and Panama, launch pads at Cape Canaveral, city water systems in Paraguay and Costa Rica, and a pipeline and water reservoir in the Florida Keys. The firm went bankrupt in 1977 for unknown reasons.
