He was awarded the company's Lavoisier Medal for Technical Achievement in 1996 for leading the research that resulted in 1973 in reinforced semi-crystalline thermoplastics like supertough nylon (Zytel ST). Active in the civil rights movement in the 1960s, he was Vice-Chair of the Delaware State Human Relations Commission, and also led the Jewish Federation of Delaware.
