Calvin Souther Fuller

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Calvin Souther Fuller was born in Chicago, Illinois back in 1902 to Julius and Bessie. He graduated from the University of Chicago in 1926, he continued his education erring a Ph.D. in 1929. He worked for Bell Labs as a physical chemist in 1930, he retired in 1967.

Upon his retirement, he bought an Airstream RV and toured the USA with his wife Willmine. He died in Vero Beach, Florida in 1994, he was 92.

Not so much right? Well this is the rest of the story. It’s short so hang on tight.

During his 37-year career at Bell Laboratories he helped develop synthetic rubber, he also was instrumental in developing and producing the first solar cells with high efficiency.

Well he sure did know how to live life to the fullest. He should have written a book on his travels.
