Professor Honghi Tran was inducted into the Paper International Hall of Fame this week. He is one of three members from our Department who are part of this elite group. Professor Doug Reeve was inducted in 2008 and Professor Howard Rapson in 2005.
Since its founding in 1992, the Paper International Hall of Fame (PIHF) has honored and recognized 135 giants in the paper industry from around the world whose accomplishments have truly revolutionized civilization. A plaque bearing each inductee’s likeness and a video highlighting the contributions of each of them to the paper industry are permanently housed at the PIHF, which is the only one of its kind in the world and was created to foster a greater understanding of the paper industry – its values, heritage and its influence on our quality of life.
