Nazif al-Khalidi, a Jerusalem engineer. He was one of the principal aides to the German chief engineer Meissner, who supervised the building of the Hijaz Railway, begun in 1900; this railroad linked Damascus and Medina. Nazif Hill in present- day Amman is named after him because he camped on it with his staff during the construction of the railroad.
