There seems to be a Hall of Fame for everything else, so why should fluid power be any different? I remember seeing a Fluid Power Hall of Fame plaque displayed at trade shows back in my early days on H&P. The plaque was made of finished wood, and a couple small chains hung down from it, with inscribed plates attached bearing the name of each inductee. There were nine original inductees from the mid-1960s, and more were probably added in subsequent years.
The Fluid Power Hall of Fame wasn’t dead, it had just been forgotten. I had looked into reactivating it several years ago, so I contacted people in the industry who might know what happened to the original Fluid Power Hall of Fame.
