Automation Hall of Fame invites sponsorships.

A pantheon of ancient, recent, and contemporary inventors, innovators, and industrialists has announced a program through which it hopes to expand understanding of technical innovation.

Sponsorship is offered to industrial and technology companies that have themselves contributed to industrial progress.

The program includes a new exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Science & Industry, annual black-tie celebratory dinners to recognize individuals, and a Web site to serve as a basic resource (www.automationhalloffame.org).

There have been some three dozen previous winners of the group's Prometheus Medal, says Robert A. Malone, chairman of the organization (and former editor of Managing Automation). Winners include Frederick Taylor, considered the first efficiency expert, Martian (Ted) Hoff, primary inventor of the microprocesor, and Joseph E. Engelberger, considered the father of the modern robotics industry.
