Dean Michael A. Fitts thanks June and Lee Holt for their contributions
Leon "Lee" Holt, Jr., L'51 joined Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., shortly after the start of the Cold War when the world was rapidly changing. Stateside, the company was involved in supplying the Defense Department and NASA with liquid hydrogen missile fuels.

His previous employers, an oil company and a prestigious New York City law firm, had more sophisticated tastes.
