    Our speaker has a long career encompassing different interesting aspects of the chemical engineering profession. He will draw from his vast experience for this interesting presentation.


    Jim first graduated from College (Rose-Hulman) in 1960 and worked 6 years in the uranium metal business for Mallinckrodt at Weldon Springs, MO.  The next three and a half years he continued to work for Mallinckrodt in St. Louis in Science Products and Pharmaceutical research.


    He has several patents, including a nuclear reactor the size of a Coke can that is used as a Technetium generator that is used in the medical diagnosis and treatment of cancer.


    After Mallinckrodt, he spent 6 months at Pfizer in East St. Louis as an assistant production supervisor in the production of magnetic oxides.  The starting material for this was crushed cars.  Then he went on to Monsanto, where he made a career of 27 years.  Jim spent three years in international sales of detergent technology, 10 years in corporate engineering, and 14 years in process and product development.  Jim retired in 1996.


    After qualifying for a P.E. License in 1978, Jim served 6 years on the NCEES Examination Committee for Chemical Engineers, and 4 years on the Finance Committee.  He also served 5 years on the Alabama Board of Licensure for Engineers and Surveyors.  More recently he has done design and consulting on metal recovery and onsite waste treatment plants.


    To “keep from getting bored in retirement” as he puts it, Jim completed a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering in 2010, his 5th earned college degree.  He tells us that any further education will be for fun!
