Guest Editorial: Fifty years with TAPPI: A personal and professional perspective, TAPPI Journal June 2020

When I was a child in Ottawa, my dad and I would go into the laboratory at E.B. Eddy’s after Sunday school to meet his mentor, Wilfred Gallay, and discuss technology that was not of direct commercial interest to the company while I got to play with his daughter Susan in the lab. A result of these discussions was their highly cited publications [1,2] in TAPPI Journal (then Tappi) on the fundamentals of wet web strength. Another result was my i-troduction to making handsheets with all sorts of additives, perhaps indicating an early interest in surface chemistry.
