After the 4th Nor’easter struck the East coast cancelling a trip to Philadelphia, the next week, Marc and Hugh drove to the City of Brotherly Love to view the short version of the documentary film, “The Instrumental Chemist” at the Science History Institute (formerly The Chemical Heritage Foundation).
