Excerpt

C. C. Furnas is a Hoosier, having arrived in Sheridan, Indiana, with the 20th century. During his undergraduate days at Purdue University, he was Big Ten champion in the cross-country and two-mile track events, and in 1920 was a member of the United States Olympic team which competed at Antwerp, Belgium.

After a short experience in teaching at the Shattuck Military School, Faribault, Minn., he took a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Michigan. Then as a physical chemist with the United States Bureau of Mines, he worked at the Minneapolis Experiment Station for five years, being particularly interested in blast furnaces. He is now Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Yale University, and a consultant to several large industrial concerns.

Professor Furnas is a member of the American Chemical Society and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

In the field of scientific writing, Professor Furnas has contributed dozens of articles and bulletins on technical subjects to scientific journals, and has had popular articles in many magazines. His one previous full-length book was America's Tomorrow which did a bit of engineering prognostication a few years ago.

Professor Furnas lives in Mount Carmel, Conn., with his wife, child, dog, two rabbits and two acres, when he is not heading somewhere to climb mountains. His ambition is to top the Matterhorn.
