American chemical engineer, a long-time professor of chemical engineering at Rice University, and a researcher widely known for his investigations of thermodynamic and transport properties, particularly of natural gas liquids and hydrates. He has been credited with writing at least 200 articles for professional journals. In 1949, he was a co-author of the Handbook of Natural Gas Engineering, which is still used by engineers in the industry.
He attended Rice University (then known as Rice Institute) and earned the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. After serving in the U.S. Army, he went to the University of Michigan, where he earned the Master of Science degree in 1946 and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1951, both in chemical engineering. He became a member of the Rice faculty in 1951 and remained there until he retired in 1994.
He died on 19 July 2013 in Houston, Texas.
