      Former City Engineer Norman P. Henderson, who served as acting City Manager during most of 1945, died Saturday at Veterans' Hospital on 23rd St. in New York City where he had been a patient since last May 1. H4 was 76.

      Since his retirement Oct. 1, 1947, Mr Henderson and his wife, the former Genevieve Haggerty of New York City, had divided their time between their farm, at Heath, Mass., and Funchal in the Madeira Islands.

      A city employee for 33 years, Mr. Henderson served frequently in the 1940s as acting City Manager but said he was not interested in a permanent appointment as manager and would not accept appointment if it were offered him.

      He also served as acting Public Safety Commissioner.

      Mr. Henderson was born in Montreal March 19, 3887, son of the late Norman B, and Clara MacAlpine Henderson, and came to the United Stales and to Yonkers as a child.

      He was graduated from Yonkers High School and received his civil engineering at New York University.

      He was first employed in the city's Engineering Bureau April 27. 1914.

      He was appointed city engineer July 8, 1923, deputy city engineer Jan. 1, 1926, and city engineer Oct 24, 1940.

      His longest service as acting City Manager, was in l945.

      Mr. Henderson assumed the office March 28, 1945, after Robert Craig Montgomery was fired as City Manager after one of the most tumultuous sessions of the Common Council in years.

      Mr. Henderson, continued in that capacity until early 1946.

      In 1942 he served, with three other city officials, on a special committee to study the city's zoning laws.

      Mr. Henderson was a member of the City Club here, the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Legion in Charlemont, Mass.

      Sole survivor is his wife, whom he married Nov. 20, 1940. A sister, Mrs. John G. Kelly, died several years ago.
