During the Society of Plastics Engineers’ Rotational Molding Conference held June 2 – 6 in Warrensville, Ohio, our film was presented by Glenn Beall of Glenn Beall Plastics, Libertyville, Illinois. Glenn and Hugh first met at an exhibition of Bakelite at the Mark Twain Library in Redding, Connecticut in 2008. He has been a mentor to Hugh and two years ago introduced us to Russ Broome, formerly President and Managing Director at SPE, now Sr. Director, Business Development at PLASTICS Industry Association.
As you may recall from our April Newsletter, Marc and Hugh visited the Science History Institute (formerly the Chemical Heritage Foundation) in Philadelphia.
After touring the Summer Palace and The Great Wall in Beijing, Hugh and his wife, Sherry flew to Shanghai where Hugh presented our film at the Baekeland 2018 Symposium. The next day the couple traveled to Hangzhou for the light show and gondola ride on the lake.
