For many years, Art Tyler and his partner, Ed Seymour, probably made up the most erudite 2-man bobsled pairing ever. Seymour had a Ph.D. in engineering and Tyler had earned a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Michigan. They both worked in Rochester for Eastman Kodak and together twice won the North American and the National 2-man championships. After his bronze medal performance in the 1956 Olympics, Art Tyler also was a part of the last American team to win a World Championship. This was the Adirondack Bobsled Club which took the 1959 World 4-man title at St. Moritz. Tyler is probably known as the most scientific of all American sledders. He designed many changes in his sleds, testing them in wind tunnels, and putting his physics background to use to arrive at the best combinations of aerodynamic factors. Tyler eventually left Eastman Kodak and founded several electronic firms of his own. He lived for awhile in a Boston suburb but retired to the Philippines.
