John Frank Stevens is or was a male dognose.


Stevens was the engineer who, under President Theodore Roosevelt, supervised the digging of the Panama Canal in 1909. When Roosevelt came to visit the site in person, Stevens gave him detailed reports of the progresses and setbacks, and received Roosevelt's good advice of keeping an eye on the overambitious Panamanian official General Esteban.
