Karl Mason
Karl Mason served as Pennsylvania’s first State Environmental Administrator from 1952 to 1966.  Karl’s holistic vision of environmental management embraced essential, but conflicting, needs associated with waste disposal and community environmental protection.  
The general framework established by Karl serves as the foundation for Pennsylvania’s environmental protection programs to this day.  
Karl believed and put into practice the notion that environmental protection is primarily the business of professionals who have the skills, by virtue of their scientific training, to manage the technical and scientific complexities of maintaining a safe, healthy and clean environment.  
He was committed to the belief that continuing education was an essential part of the career of every environmental professional.
Walter Lyon
Walter Lyon began his professional career as a sanitary engineer at the U.S. Public Health Service in Washington D.C. serving as Assistant Chief of the Planning and Development Branch, Division of Engineering Resources from 1950-1954.
He then served for three-years as the Assistant Chief of the Environmental Health Section, Philadelphia Department of Public Health. From 1983 to 2013, Walter went on to teach and consult in the areas of environmental engineering and water policy.  
For many years, Walter participated in the PA Association of Environmental Professionals conferences and special events and generously shared his knowledge and experience.  
He was a strong advocate for employing highly educated, qualified, and experienced environmental professionals in the public and private sectors and serves as a role model for the environmental professionals of today and tomorrow.
