Philip Sporn
Sporn was one of the foremost contributors to the growth in the consumption and dissemination of electric power. A tireless advocate for the industry, Sporn’s efforts were aimed at greater efficiency of operations through technological advances in the fields of electric power generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization. In 1954, Sporn received the Charles A. Coffin Medal for pioneering advancement in engineering. He was cited for two advances made by his company: operation of the country’s first 330K volt transmission line and initiation of the manufacture of the nation’s first electric power generating unit to use ultra-high pressure steam.
