Abraham Lenhoff, the University of Delaware’s Allan P. Colburn Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, delivered his inaugural lecture on Wednesday, April 25, 2012. His presentation, “The Colburn Papers,” uses the University of Delaware Library’s collection of Colburn's early papers to explore characteristics of chemical engineering education and research in the 1920s and 1930s. In particular, the presentation features extracts from an extensive set of Colburn's class notes from his University of Wisconsin classes in the 1920s, and research and administrative documents from Colburn's career at DuPont and UD from the 1930s to the 1950s.
