Wallace Hume Carothers is the proclaimed father of organic polymer science. Midwest bred, he packed more than a lifetime of accomplishments into 40 years of life. Carothers was a hard driving, intense, yet quiet and warm individual, reared in the midlands of America. Recognized by such “talent scouts” as Arthur Pardee, Roger Adams and Carl (Speed) Marvel, he moved to Harvard and then to du Pont where he established an empire that remains. Insights gleaned from first and second hand encounters will be related with an emphasis on both his emergence from the midlands to the establishing of the basic science of macromolecular synthesis.
