SAE Medal of Honor

Established in 1986, the SAE Medal of Honor pays tribute to a living SAE member

for unique and significant contributions to SAE International by strengthening or

adding to its ability to further its purpose. Unlike other SAE awards that recognize

technical achievements or outstanding accomplishments in the various fields of mobility

engineering, this award honors an individual for their contributions to the overall SAE

International organization. The significance of the contributions shall have been tested

over time and shall be regarded as a major factor in SAE’s success.

This award consists of a framed medallion made of precious metals.

ARNOLD W. SIEGEL

PRESIDENT

ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATES, INC.

Mr. Siegel is being recognized for his more than 50 years of

dedicated and meritorious service to SAE International and

the SAE Foundation.

Mr. Siegel is a pioneer in the field of automotive safety. His

research has led to many safety features that are now common

in production vehicles. In addition, he helped initiate SAE

International’s entry in the automotive safety field and

contributed to many SAE standards and conferences; the result of which has greatly

improved auto safety globally. Through the years, he has served as a university professor

and industry consultant. He helped pioneer research on barrier, side-impact, rollover

head-on, motorcycle and pedestrian crashes. He built the first infant and child dummies,

crash tested them and worked on and designed the first rear-ward facing infant safety

seats and child booster seats. He and a physician began non-fatal, on-scene accident

investigation using multi-disciplinary teams. He co-directed trauma research groups and

developed and organized training programs for several governmental agencies, including

the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Mr. Siegel has been a major factor in the success of both SAE International and the SAE

Foundation. He has served on the SAE International Board of Directors, numerous

Society committees, sub-committees and operating boards. In addition, he also has

been a long-standing member of the SAE Foundation’s Board of Trustees and, for years,

served as co-chair of the SAE-managed STAPP Car Crash conference, which helped to

place SAE International at the center of automotive safety progress. In 1987, Mr. Siegel

established the Arnold W. Siegel International Transportation Safety Award.

Mr. Siegel has been an important reason for the outstanding success of the SAE

Foundation’s programs, especially A World In Motion®. He was a key contributor in the

planning and undertaking of the SAE Foundation’s highly successful $25 million Capital

Campaign. Through SAE International and the SAE Foundation, Mr. Siegel has tirelessly

worked to improve education in science, math, technology, and engineering (STEM) at

all levels.

2


Mr. Siegel is an SAE International Fellow, and a member of the California Association

of Criminalists, Sigma Xi, and is a professional safety engineer. He was a member of

the Attorney General’s Traffic Safety Committee and the California Passenger Safety

Resource Panel, and has been a consultant to many agencies and companies, including

Physicians for Automotive Safety, and the SAE International Accident Investigation

Practices Subcommittee. Mr. Siegel has received many rewards, including: Abelson

Leadership Award 2008; Montana Ambassador’s Plenipotentiary 2001 Award;

Humanitarian Fellowship Award; Save the Children Federation Distinguished Service

Award; Service Technician Society; and Legacy of Gold Award from West Yellowstone

Foundation.

For these and many other achievements, SAE International is proud to present its highest

award - the SAE Medal of Honor - to Arnold W. Siegel.
