He was employed as a research chemist at the American Can Co., first in Maywood and then Barrington, Ill. He later transferred to its new research facility in Princeton, N.J., in 1964. He retired in 1982 after 32 years of service. He was a member of the American Chemical Society for 74 years and was active in the Eastern Analytical Symposium and the ACS Trenton Local Section. He recognized the importance of research and development to economic competitiveness and environmental protection. He is remembered by his family and friends as being a most wonderful, ethical, and kind gentleman.”—Thomas H. Hoffman, son
