Afterward, he spent several years teaching and working in industry, including California Polytechnic, Stanford University, Abbott Laboratories, and Aerojet, and in 1963, he founded Science Services. A longtime member of the American Chemical Society, he was a charter member of the Division of Chemical Health & Safety. His interest in wine quality led him to investigate the effect of oxygen on aging in wines.”—Karen Wilk Klein, cousin
