The Board of Directors of the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame (PIIHF) and Atlas Science Center will honor three new inductees into the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame at the Wisconsin Paper Council Annual Meeting held at the Resch Expo in Green Bay, WI on June 19. The three inductees are as follows:

Christian Schiel: Throughout most of his career he was employed as the Chief Development Engineer for J.M. Voith. His innovations included: the fabric press, fabric covered press rolls, the technology to manufacture flexible roll sleeves, flexible nip presses, numerous compact press configurations as well as a series of forming devices based on roll forming technologies. Christian built his own career serving a three-year apprenticeship as a millwright and ultimately earning a degree in mechanical engineering at the Oskar von Miller Polytechnikum in Munich in 1954. In 1994, he was the recipient of the Walter Brecht Award of ZELLCHEMING for outstanding achievements in the pulp and paper industry.

Harold Miller: Harold began his career in the paper industry with Marathon Corporation as a process engineer. Following a stint at American Can, he along with partners founded Marathon Engineering. Through his leadership, Marathon grew to a peak employment of over 225 employees before merging with Poyry. Harold was instrumental in establishing the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame as well as the Paper Discovery Center, now Atlas Science Center.

Harry Spiegelberg: Following graduation from UW-Madison with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Harry was employed by Kimberly-Clark Corporation. He spent his entire career with K-C, ending as Vice President of Technology and Patent Strategy. He earned a master’s degree in Chemistry, a Ph.D. in Physics and an M.B.A. Harry is listed as inventor or co-inventor on several patents describing products and processes commercialized by Kimberly-Clark.
