I knew J.-P. through my earlier years at Polaroid. He was very good friends with Research Director Lloyd Taylor and Lloyd hired many of his students. The best known is John Warner, hired after John received his Ph. D. from Ted Tay- lor at Princeton. But I also worked and in one case supervised a former student of his, the irrepressible, Bill Collibee, of Everett who bounced between chem- istry and pharmacy but ended up back at his roots as a bench chemist after return- ing to J.-P. to get a master’s degree. One of my first labmates at Polaroid was Charlie Hammond, another of J.P.’s stu- dents, as well as Cathy (Keane) Palumbo who became our NMR spectroscopist. His legacy at Polaroid was substantial and he was loved and respected by those who knew him. There is a wonderful obituary at the Roberts-Mitchell Funeral Home in Medfield, MA.
