ATC Endowment Fund




In 1989, ATC established the Henry J. Degenkolb Memorial Endowment Fund, named for a dedicated structural engineer ⎯ an international leader in the development of structural engineering technology ⎯ who gave outstanding technical support to the Applied Technology Council and its projects.

The James Merriam Delahay Endowment Fund was initiated in 2005 by the Structural Engineers Association of Alabama to honor the memory of Jim Delahay, a former ATC President, known nationwide for his work to improve wind codes and standards.

The purpose of the Degenkolb and Delahay Endowment Funds is to support projects of critical interest to structural engineering design practice, research, and education.
