GMIC's Brown Wins 2003 Phoenix Award

This year's Phoenix Award has been presented to John T. Brown, current technical director for the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC) and a respected engineer, inventor and manager who worked for Corning, Inc. for almost 40 years. As the 33rd distinguished winner, he received a Steuben glass sculpture of the mythological Phoenix bird at a ceremony and banquet held in Corning, N.Y., on September 26, 2003. The Phoenix Award was established in 1971 to recognize individuals who have made significant lifetime contributions to the glass industry in the field of science, production or education relating to glass containers, fiber glass, scientific glass, flat glass, tableware and electronic glass. "John's selection by the Phoenix Award Committee caps a career that has spanned four decades," said Dave Brooks, Phoenix Award committee chairman. "Over the course of his career he has authored and presented over 50 papers and has 15 patents, 12 still active and three currently pending. His contributions, particularly in areas of energy management and oxy/fuel firing techniques, have become building blocks for the entire glass industry."

The GMIC's website is located at http://www.gmic.org .
