“Paul was a respected University of New Hampshire faculty member for 39 years. His scholarly interests were organic chemistry and the history of chemistry. He was a gifted teacher: a masterful and inspiring classroom lecturer and an excellent mentor to his research students. He was also a model of dedication and civility to his colleagues. He capped off his university career as department chair. After retirement, he served as editor of the Bulletin for the History of Chemistry for 15 years. Above all, Paul was a genuinely nice person who loved his family and was always ready to help a friend.”—Gary R. Weisman, friend and colleague
