The AMM Steel Hall of Fame is pleased to announce its Class of 2012 inductees: five distinguished individuals who pioneered, developed or furthered the practices, strategies and interests of the steel industry.

Luigi Danieli, Thomas C. Graham, Father William T. Hogan, Irving Rossi and John B. Tytus, selected after a rigorous nomination process and review by the Steel Hall of Fame voting committee, are profiled on the following pages. We believe they are a truly outstanding group of industry notables.

Earlier this year, we inducted the inaugural class to the AMM Steel Hall of Fame: Sir Henry Bessemer, Andrew Carnegie, Judge Elbert H. Gary, Yoshihiro Inayama, F. Kenneth Iverson, Willy Korf, Park Tae-joon and Charles M. Schwab, who were profiled in our March issue. Among the fledgling Steel Hall of Fame’s members, of which there are now 13, only Graham is still living, and we offer a special profile of him.

To be eligible for entry, a candidate must be retired from full-time active participation in the industry. AMM is proud to recognize the great achievers of the steel industry and celebrate their work at Over time, we expect to find a physical hall to host a permanent exhibit, but in the meantime a roving exhibit at a selection of AMM industry conferences will depict the work of these great pioneers.

The launch of the Steel Hall of Fame this year coincides with the 130th anniversary of AMM. Additional inductees will be announced in future issues.Luigi DanieliLuigi Danieli took a small, family owned company manufacturing steel mill equipment and used it to transform the global industry, developing new tools and techniques that ultimately made mini-mills the most efficient steel producers in the world.
