Edward J. Brady Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Mar 1, 2023

Ed Brady entered the welding world at the height of the depression in 1933. Arc welding at that time used bare rod, resulting in poor arc control and porosity in the weld deposit. His early experience focused on developing electrode coatings extruded on rod to stabilize the arc, particularly in alloy and stainless steel electrodes.

By 1940, welding was rapidly moving from the maintenance shop to the production floor, replacing the slower bolting and riveting fabrication. The conversion was driven by the demand for war material in Europe and the US build up. Armor steel was difficult to weld without cracking, but Brady's coating formulations resolved the problem.

In 1940, Brady gathered financial backing from four business men in York, Pennsylvania. He purchased used tow exrusion presses from a scrap dealer, and went into the electrode business as Alloy Rods Company. His competition was the heavily capitalized companies of Lincoln Electric, General Electric, Westinghouse, A.O. Smith, Harnischfeger, and Air Reduction. In spite of this formidable competition, however, Alloy Rods' ability to supply special alloy electrodes coupled with their high service level caused them to flourish.

Brady's active development of new filler metal products expanded his product line from stick electrodes into MIG and Flux cored wires, and distribution to numerous overseas licensee's and distributors. Alloy Rods is now part of ESAB Welding and Cutting Products, a division of the largest welding products producer in the world.

It is the objective of this scholarship to honor Mr. Edward J. Brady for his entrepreneurial spirit, knowledge, perseverance, vision and respect for welding. His contributions came at a time when welding was "coming of age," and the improvements in quality and process control generated by him were vital to the acceptance of arc welding.
