Edgar Seagle, Environmental Engineer and Consultant, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of public health.

In 1943, Dr. Seagle began his career serving in the United States Navy as a Plans and Tactics Officer in World War II. He served until 1946, when he received an honorable discharge, and pursued his higher education at the University of North Carolina. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry in 1949, Dr. Seagle started as a senior sanitarian in the health department of the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, a post he held until 1952. Continuing his academic pursuits, he graduated from the University of North Carolina with a Master of Science in public health in 1954. In the summers of 1954, 1955 and 1957, Dr. Seagle was detailed to the atomic energy commission to work on the nuclear test site in Nevada, where he studied the environmental aspects of the tests they conducted—he considers this a major achievement in his career. As a registered professional engineer in the state of Alabama, he has also contributed numerous articles to professional publications in the field.

After working as a sanitation consultant for the North Carolina State Board of Health from 1954 to 1956, and as the chief of the industrial hygiene section in the health department of the city of Charlotte from 1956 to 1959, Dr. Seagle pursued further education at the University of Florida. He earned a BCE in 1961 and accepted a position as the engineering director for the United States Public Health Service (USPHS), where he excelled until 1978. In 1968, he was recognized for his work with a commendation medal from the USPHS, and in 1974, he earned a DPH from the University of Texas. Following his departure from the USPHS, Dr. Seagle served as the assistant director of the fellowship office of the National Academy of Sciences and worked as a public health engineer at the department of environmental protection in the state of Maryland. He left this position in 1988 to pursue independent engineering consultancy, in which his career flourished for more than 15 years. As a testament to his success, experience and stature, Dr. Seagle has been selected for inclusion in multiple editions of Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in the East, and Who’s Who in America.
