Dr. Wesley Memeger

 

On Wednesday, February 24, Hagley will premiere a new documentary chronicling the life of Dr. Wesley Memeger, Jr. Memeger, a long-time DuPont chemist at the Pioneering Research Laboratory, who played a crucial role in streamlining the production of Kevlar by discovering a faster polymerization process. Memeger holds fourteen patents for his discoveries. In addition, he is an accomplished artist, taking inspiration from the geometric shapes found in molecular compounds.

The 40-minute documentary will premiere on YouTube at 7 p.m. on February 24th (link will be available here prior to the event) and will be hosted by Dr. Jeanne Nutter, Professor of Media Communications at Bloomfield College and an award-winning oral historian.
