My entire career has focused on research and development, mostly in refining, petrochemicals, and catalysts. Very interesting work.

My fun activities are travel, gardening, and reading world history & geography. My country list is 58.

In February 2012 I joined Reliance Industries Ltd ( the largest non-gov't company in India - comparable size and business to Dow Chemical). I recently retired and now live in suburban Philadelphia (NJ side).

I still travel for fun. We are building a new house in suburban Nairobi (elevation 5900 ft on the equator, T from 50 to 80F!)

School Story:

My favorite class was American History with Mr. Ross. He made history SO interesting: cause and effect... three causes of the Civil War (three S's): secession, slavery, states rights, alliteration for virtually every major event! He also told titillating/juicy stories that bordered on being a BIT off-color.

History followed me into college. Even though I was an engineering student, I took an advanced level Am. History class first semester freshman year. ALL of the other students were history majors, most were grad student or upper classmen. The professor asked me if I was in the right class. Very embarrassing!

Happy early Birthday, Phil. Hope you have a great day.

Philip Angevine has left an In Memory comment for Edward Byrd.

The comments so far are very good. Ed was such a great guy in many people's lives. We were all richer for knowing him. My late father (a big time racist) even said great things about the Byrd family.

I enjoyed chatting with him at our last reunion together. That was the 40th.

Quie frankly, we must all get to the next reunion before we lose more fine people.
