    NEW YORK, NY, February 19, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Walter Sigmund Helly, PhD, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Helly 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. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

In a distinguished career that spans more than four decades, Dr. Helly retired from a tenured position as a professor of operations research at the Polytechnic Institute of New York, now designated as the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, after 30 successful years. Prior to entering academia, he held several prominent positions in New York City, including as a senior engineer for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and a member of the technical staff for Bell Telephone Laboratories, now known as Nokia Bell Labs. Likewise, he worked in Massachusetts as a senior engineer with Melpar Co. in Boston and Sylvania Electric Products Inc. in Waltham. He has also provided his wealth of knowledge in his industry as a traffic flow consultant.

A prolific author, Dr. Helly published his first book in 1975, titled "Urban Systems Models," which has since been translated into Japanese. Moreover, he served as a book review editor for the Journal of Operations Research and has contributed many articles to various professional journals in his areas of expertise. Dr. Helly has been a member of the Operations Research Society of America, which is now called the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences, as well, for which he flourished as a former chairman of the transportation science section. A celebrated Marquis listee, he has also been featured in more than 30 editions of Who's Who publications, including Who's Who in America, Who's Who in American Education and Who's Who in Science and Engineering, among others.

Born in Vienna, Austria, Dr. Helly initially desired to become an ornithologist, but instead pursued a field more closely related to what his parents had studied. Both mathematicians, his parents found great success in their discipline; his mother (Elise Bloch) was just the second woman to receive a doctorate in mathematics at the University of Vienna in 1915. Meanwhile, his father (Eduard Helly) gained extensive recognition in the field having several mathematical theorems named in his honor. Immigrating to the U.S. with his family in 1938, Dr. Walter Sigmund Helly matriculated at Cornell University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in 1950. Additionally earning a Master of Science at the University of Illinois in 1954, he concluded his studies at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he graduated with a Doctor of Philosophy in 1959.
