The Alexander Holley Society was established in 2011 in honor of Alexander Lyman Holley (1832 - 1882), a mechanical engineer who helped found ASME and revolutionized steel production in the United States. It recognizes the leadership of individuals who make an annual commitment of $1,000 or more to the ASME Foundation.

Considered the most renowned steel and plant engineer and designer of his time, Alexander Holley’s ideas and concepts influenced education and industry for decades. His innovations influenced the growth of commerce and the industrial economy in the U.S. He is recognized for introducing the Bessemer process of steelmaking to the U.S., which made large quantities of steel economically available to support a rapid growth in American industry during the late-nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. 

He chaired the first meeting of the founders of ASME in the offices of the American Machinist on February 16, 1880, and is credited for establishing the intellectual boundaries of the mechanical engineering profession and ASME. ASME Foundation is proud to recognize and preserve the legacy of such an extraordinary engineer who has given much to the profession.
