1#I would have to vote for the late bill mahoney.I met him in 82 at salem I think,and he taught be the ropes early about being a road tech,especially drinking.
I remember we were on nights he would have been drinking during the day and finding the best places to sleep at work."under the S/G table in the bio shield.
God I miss the 80's!!!
He was very smart tech.I was a house tech back then.

2#Then there is Captain Neutron aka mike neuroth.I remember him in the early 80's at salem,when he use to move rad trash and wear a hard hat with a red flashing light on it.We use to die laughing and his ollie and lena jokes.
you can buy his hat on his web site I think?

I agree with SPANKY,but I have been around and met some good techs. I could make a long list of Techs that have  had an impact, but to single out  a few wouldn't be fair to the rest.
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand

   Perhaps a number of categories would be important. Such as the Most Colorful (to be tactful), Biggest Contribution (company owners, authors, etc.) and Best Coworker ( someone you always look forward to working with). CFCC and Anapolis (IRM) are also locations that could be considered for the HPHoF (Hip Hof) though we now live in a world with a diminished importance of the sense of place. In this internet world a web site may the place to locate a shrine to transient rad workers. Realistically who would be the governing body (Nukeworker Gold Members?). Rennhack could be put up for a couple of these categories. Any volunteers?

Now this is the type of thread that could go on forever!  I have never really figured out why the HP arena has so many colorful people.  It seems of all the traveling trades the HP's are the most interesting in terms of diversified personalities.  I have met the most interesting people on the road, one of the reasons I love my job so much.

,,Gerald Parker...rest his soul...started at Pacagula shipyard in the 60's...was a supervisor to Omar, Larry Werner, Gordie, TP, Syd, at Ingles,,,was well known in the PSESI circle...around CP&L..and later COMED,,,,,always a professional...Gerald was a righteous guy...always backed us up on issues that needed office help...raised a whole houseful of Rent-a-techs....who else gives Gerald a nod to the Hall of Fame..........I think the hall should be at TMI, because when that accident happened, the HP business really got into high gear..prior to then HP support was minimal.....red

The University of Chicago, no contest. It is where the term Health Physics was coined (reportedly by Fermi himself), to differentiate between the physicists concerned with the nuclear reaction and the physicists concerned with the health affects. Imagine having a HoF in the city where it all began (as opposed to the Rock 'n Roll HoF in CLEVELAND, of all places!)
"I won't eat anything that has intelligent life, but I'd gladly eat a network executive or a politician."

                                  -Marty Feldman

"Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to understand that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
                                  -Ronald Reagan

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it.

What he said...
I can't see it going somewhere that was a site of mass destruction like Hiroshima or Nagasaki or the site of a disaster like TMI.  I think it would be better in an area that celebrates the accomplishment of Nuclear energy and it's contribution to clean power

put it here...   i second the vote

wouldn't such a hall of fame be worthy of a virtual museum?  people could upload pix of their best outage tee shirts (if any have survived all these years)...   or how about the dollar bill kj carries (it has i think six sevens in the serial number)...   trinkets...   i have an old IRM tote bag i could photo and upload...   

as for legends of the business...   you'll need a whole book of rules to figure it out...   and probably the biggest two legends were mentioned in the first entry by RB...   however, does anyone else remember the hood boys?

I vote for the Paris Municipal School in Paris, France; where the concepts of radioactivity began.

I vote Maria Sklodowska for HP Hall of Fame, of course she would be in the shadow of Bill "Head-Butts" Campbell.

Chris Morley ...? Yer sick Marssim 8)
Let's see ... Ron Scanlon.
He was about 900 years old when I ran into him at HB Robinson in '87 or so. Everyone thought he was carzy because he wondered around muttering under his breath all the time and no one could tell what he was thinking. Then I ran into him one night at a Chinese place in Hartsville and got a seat at the bar close enough to make out what he was muttering about. It was Shakespere ... no kiddin. I had to go over and ask him what he was doing quoting that stuff ... word for word and correct mind you ... He said that every day life and work etc. weren't enought o keep his mind busy. He had to quote Shakespere on top of it all to keep his brain from getting bored to death. He claimed to have worked in the Nevada underground testing days. He said they would set one off underground and then he would ride a mine elevator down and do a survey. I laughed and asked him if he was Openheimer's pencil boy and he looked me dead in the eye and said "yes".

Go figger. The old coot was sharp as a tac and taught me a lot about the biz. I can't imagine he's around anymore considering he had a pretty good coating of dust on him already way back then. I imagine he's long gone and burried. But he gets at least one vote from me in the old fart catagory.

Funniest? No question: (Gerald) Wayne Mandrell: He knows more jokes than anyone I have ever met and has the ability to tell them in such a way that most times you ended up on the ground holding your side by the time he was finished. He was my best buddy for years ... heck ... we even have our names on the same US Patent. But we drifted apart over time. He's still around ... doing site coordinator type stuff for Bartlett last I heard. He's probably all growed up just like me now, but I doubt he could possibly have lost his joke telling magic :P

Coolest: Tony McCall

Hardest Working: Toss up between Brad Pittman and Dave Rochester

The one that made me feel funny (yah ... you know ... like climbing up the rope in gym class funny) Suzie ... Don't worry. No last names on that one.

Most Moral: "Rapid" Ray Roseberry

Overall Knowledge Level: Jim Foster

Most Fun In A Bar:Stan Kissiah

Best Basketball Player: Carl Moeller

Best Schmoozer: Jimmy Price

Biggest Lady-Killer: Steve McCleoud (sp?)

Best to work for: Rich Kelly (I never actually worked for Rich but I saw how he treated his people and if I were a contractor again he's be the one I'd wanna work for.)

Most Grounded: Ray "Honest Fox" Frank.

I could go on for a very long time on this thread but I'll lay off for a while and let someone else get a vote in  ;)

Ron Scanlon, now there's a name I haven't heard since SONGS in 1981.  He was definitely the best of the Las Vegas class that came out there with Combustion Engineering.  I second that nomination.

Best tech to have fun with at a bar:  Hubcap Or BILL MAHONEY

1 of a kind tech they broke the mold:  captain neutron the flashing red light on his hard hat was a trip and mike getz,who could touch him.

Don't worry Marssim, I got rid of that old Blue Pariseinne (sp?) the old fashioned way ... i gave it to my sister-in-law. She made my brother's life miserable so I returned the favor. I opted for the Jaguar after that. Many, many sedans later I'm into the  '06 Ford 500 AWD now. Then I keep the '05 SUV around as well since winters up here get to be a little harsh. I think I've owned a little of everything over the years ... Heck, I even bought a Yugo as a disposable car way back when  :P

More Hall of Famers:

Biggest Drinker: Adrien Lucy
Best Cook: John Mohicah
Sexiest Containment Coordinator: Radbitch
Looks the most like George Clooney: Steve Rupp (A less fit, less attractive, heavier, funnier George Clooney 8)  )
Most Buff: Don Lockard
Most Frugal: Goetz (Worked with him for a few years ... most of the soories are mostly true)
Most 'Country': Strawberry Layman
