This is one of Dan Holohan's favorite stories about Gil. Dan likes to share it with others every April 28th, the day Gil passed away. I always enjoy it and so will you.

Carlson-Holohan Industry Award of Excellence Finds Permanent Home in an American Institution.

March 09th, 2016.

Right across the street from the Harvard Club of New York, funded by notable members such as Andrew Carnegie sits The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York. Founded on November 17, 1785 the aims of the General Society were to provide cultural, educational and social services to families of skilled craftsmen. Today, it is the oldest privately endowed tuition-free technical school in the city of New York, with thousands of alumni. It is only fitting that the Carlson-Holohan Industry Award of Excellence has now found a permanent home inside this prestigious institution.

The honors bestowed upon an American or Canadian citizen, are based upon the character traits of Gil Carlson, mechanical engineer and inventor of the Bell & Gossett System Syzer and his protégé Dan Holohan, author, educator, humanitarian and Society member. Presented once every two years, the recognition is given to an individual known for their dedication to teaching, mentoring and raising funds for philanthropic causes on behalf of the steam and hydronic industry.

It brings me immense pleasure as a founder of this award to see, “Gil’s wheel” and these two great men permanently positioned in the halls of North American history.

Sincerely,

Robert Bean, R.E.T., P.L.(Eng.)
Award Chairman
