STEM Faculty, 1962

Dr. Charles Willms and a chromatograph machine, 1962

While this machine is not specifically identified in the negative collection, the series of images taken suggest it was recently acquired by the University as state-of-the-art STEM technology in 1962.

The man in the bow tie is Dr. Charles R. Willms, a professor of Chemistry at Southwest Texas State for nearly 40 years (1959-1997).  The machine he is pointing to is likely a chromatograph, which was used to identify and separate chemicals within an unknown sample.
