In 1937, former Harvard chemistry instructor Wallace H. Carothers poisoned himself with cyanide.   His anxiety: he had deserted pure science for commercial gain.  At DuPont, Carothers had developed Fiber 66, better known as nylon.  A year later after his death, DuPont introduced nylon hosiery.  SOURCE: Business Week/Summer 1999

These crazy pages are dedicated to Wallace Carothers and his unknown contribution to life in the twentieth century.
