GERMAN-AMERICAN HALL OF FAME INDUCTS DONALD J. TRUMP and JOHN ROEBLING AT GALA TRUMP TOWER RECEPTION
New York, NY (October 19, 2012)
On Wednesday, October 17th, the German-American Hall of Fame (GAMHOF) inducted two Americans who have changed the face of our nation, Donald J. Trump and John Augustus Roebling. The program was emceed by nationally-known radio and TV host Rita Cosby.
William Hetzler, the Chairman and Founder of the GAMHOF, stated that: “We at GAMHOF are so proud to warmly welcome Donald J. Trump and John Roebling to the German-American Hall of Fame.”
The formal induction ceremony took place at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City. GAMHOF Chairman William Hetzler recently met with Mr. Trump to inform him of the Board of Trustees’ decision. “I am honored to join the remarkable group of outstanding Americans already in the Hall,” said Mr. Trump.
GAMHOF was established in 2004 by prominent Americans of German ancestry to recognize and celebrate the impact of German immigrants and their progeny to the United States by highlighting some of the most remarkable German-Americans through a virtual “Hall of Fame.”
As has been a custom every year, there was a posthumous inductee, and that individual for 2012 was John A. Roebling, the revolutionary civil engineer builder of the Brooklyn Bridge and other notable American structures.
“By inducting Donald J. Trump and John A. Roebling into the German-American Hall of Fame, we are recognizing two great Americans of German ancestry who have truly changed the skylines and landscape of America,” said GAMHOF Chairman and Founder William Hetzler. “Literally tens of millions of Americans and visitors have shopped, traversed or lived in the architectural creations of Messrs. Trump and Roebling. We are most proud of them, their distinctive styles and their huge impact on the United States of America.
