In memoriam. (People).

Long-time recycling equipment engineer Wallace M. Thompson, who worked for Harris Press & Shear for more than two decades, passed away in June. He was 90.

Thompson joined Harris in the early 1950s and was instrumental in designing Harris's first hydraulic scrap shear, introduced in 1952. Thompson, a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), was also instrumental in designing above-ground baler models that replaced earlier generations of below-ground pit balers.

After having helped design the TG line of Harris balers, Thompson retired from Harris in the mid-1970s as its VP-engineering. He is survived by two daughters, Kim Settles and Judy B. Phillips, and four grandchildren.
