Technical Chair: Wayne Niehoff, BWXT, Euclid

Speaker: Gene Homer, P.E.

Mr. Homer Joined ASM in 1978 and is a Life Member and also serves on the ASM Akron Chapter Executive Committee. He attended the Mont Alto Campus of Pennsylvania State University and graduated with an Associate Degree in Mechanical Engineering. In 1978 he became a Registered Professional Metallurgical Engineer. Gene was hired by Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Equipment Division (now BWX Technologies) as a Laboratory Technician in the Quality Control Materials Laboratory and achieved the position of Laboratory Supervisor/Furnace Master/Chief Metallurgist before his retirement after 49 years of service.

Railroads and metallurgy are very closely connected, certainly without metallurgy (particularly iron & steel) the railroads as we know them would not exist.  Can the parallel histories be explained in 30 minutes or less?

As well as being Student Night, it is Member Milestone Night. Congratulations to the following:
