The University of Akron College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering

John earned a Ph.D. in Polymer Science in 1972. He and Nancy spent several years at UA and remain grateful for the hospitality of friends and colleagues in the Institute of Polymer Science under the direction of the late Dr. Maurice Morton, more than 40 years ago.

They treasure many memories of their time at UA, and in Akron and created this scholarship to benefit PSPE students.
