    EDGEWOOD, MD, May 31, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Arthur K. Stuempfle with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Mr. Stuempfle celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Mr. Stuempfle is a former research scientist of more than five decades who retired in 2013 after 17 years as a senior scientist with Optimetrics, Inc., in Abingdon, MD. A career that began in 1958 as a student trainee at the U.S. Army Chemical Center, he spent four years training before becoming the chief of the test and measurement branch at the U.S. Army Chemical School in Fort McClellan, AL. From there, Mr. Stuempfle became a physicist in 1964 at the Edgewood Arsenal, the U.S. Army's oldest active proving ground located on the Aberdeen Proving Ground, a U.S. Army facility located adjacent to Aberdeen, MD. In 1971, he moved into the role of research physicist within the Chemical Systems Laboratory. He then served in several capacities at the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center, beginning in 1978 as chief of the operational science branch, then to chief of the physics division in 1985, and later as the director of operations research simulation in 1994. The center is notably the United States' principal research and development resource for non-medical chemical and biological defense.

Throughout his career, Mr. Stuempfle has conducted research in aerosol and spray dissemination, characterization on chemical warfare and chemical biological defense technology. Other areas of research have included mathematical modeling and operations research analyses, aerosol transport, deposition and environmental fate, powder technology, homeland defense and force protection for chemical/biological terrorism incidents. In light of his research, Mr. Stuempfle has contributed numerous articles to various professional journals and chapters in technical books. He also co-authored the 2012 book published by Arcadia Press "Images of America: Edgewood" and the 2018 book "The Edgewood Scrapbook." Furthermore, he was founder and editor of the Edgewood Community Newsletter from 2008 to 2011. He holds two patents in his field.

Mr. Stuempfle served as U.S. chairman for an international chemical task force as part of the Canada/U.S./U.K. Technical Cooperation Program in Washington, DC, between 1994 and 1995. He was also a consultant on the physical property subcommittee of the National Spray Drift Task Force in Wilmington, DE, tri-national chairman of the Canada/U.S./U.K. Task Force on Chem-Bio Simulants, and U.S. representative on aerosol technology of the International Technical Cooperation Program of the Canada/U.S./U.K. in Washington, DC.

Very much involved in his community, Mr. Stuempfle has been a lay reader, committee chairman, cantor, church building committee chairman, and newsletter editor for Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Edgewood since 1979. He is a former organizing member of the Edgewood Meadows Civic and Improvement Association and a former business manager of the LC Sewing School in Edgewood.

Mr. Stuempfle has been honored numerous times. Receiving an Excellence in Technology Transfer Award from the Federal Laboratory Consortium in 2005, he also received an International Technology Development Award from the Canada/U.S./U.K. Department of Defense in 1990 and a W.H. Walker Technology Leadership Award from the Chemical Research, Development and Engineering Center in 1987, among others. The Chemical Corps Regimental Association honored him with the Ancient Order of the Dragon award in 2008. He received several awards from the U.S. Army as well, including a Meritorious Civilian Service with Oak Leaf Cluster Award in 1996, a Special Features Award from the Army Material Command in 1989, a Meritorious Civilian Service Award in 1986, and a Research and Development Achievement Award in 1977. Mr. Stuempfle has been included in approximately 25 editions of Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Science and Engineering, Who's Who in the East and Who's Who in the World.

Earning a Bachelor of Science in physics from Drexel University in 1962, Mr. Stuempfle later acquired a Master of Science in physics from Johns Hopkins University in 1971. Born in Williamsport, PA, he was the first in his family to attend college. Taking an interest in the sciences at a very young age, while in high school, Mr. Stuempfle was elected vice president of his graduating class and held 10 offices at one time. Crediting his parents, Arthur Carl and Jeanette Esther Jacobs, as two very positive role models for him, his mother lived a blessed life until the age of 103.

Married to his wife Linda Jean Campbell since 1961, Mr. Stuempfle has two sons, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Marrying his wife has been his greatest achievement. In his free time, he loves to write and cook. To stay active, he enjoys traveling, practicing Tai Chi and ballroom dancing.
