Notes:

From http://pubs.acs.org article by Michael Block

Remembering Ben
As we reported in the February issue of Chemical Innovation, Benjamin J. Luberoff, the founding editor of our forerunner, CHEMTECH, passed away on January 18. Ben’s fight to live when he was stricken by a sarcoma in September 2000 was chronicled earlier on this page (CI, December 2000). But when the cancer spread to his lungs, there was nothing the medical profession could do to prolong his life.

Jack R. Gould, a colleague and close friend of Ben’s since the early 1960s, captured the essentials of his life in this obituary. Jack is the president-elect of the Chemical Society of Washington, DC.

Benjamin J. Luberoff, 75, chemist, chemical engineer, consultant to the chemical industry, and founding editor of CHEMTECH, the award-winning publication of the American Chemical Society, died of cancer in Fearrington Village, NC, on January 18, 2001. He and his wife had residences in Fearrington and in Summit, NJ.
Dr. Luberoff had a strong commitment to family, to community, to his religious heritage, and to his work. His inquisitiveness and zest for life touched everyone he met. He was also an artist who worked in a variety of media, most notably collages made from homemade paper and other materials. He was active in a number of community groups in North Carolina and New Jersey, plus other organizations such as the Vintage Car Club, Books on Tape, and the Literacy Council. He was a volunteer worker for local community causes. For the ACS, he was also a tour speaker, college consultant, and career counselor.

His offbeat editorials in CHEMTECH, “The Industrial Chymist”, rarely failed to “grab” you for their diverse, interesting subject matter and humor. His work philosophy was expressed in one of these editorials, “What’s the past tense of status quo?” (October 1976, p 601): “Why do we do nothing? Simple-it’s easier than doing something. Getting background is hard. Making decisions, even recommendations, is painful. So we stand still and try to be invisible. But that’s a device to keep safe that was thought up by bunnies. I guess it’s OK if all that one wants out of life is what bunnies get. But if somebody swipes your status quo while you’re hiding-well, I warned you.”

Ben was born in Philadelphia in 1925. He served in active duty during World War II and then earned a B.Ch.E degree from Cooper Union in 1949, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from Columbia University in 1950 and 1955, respectively. He served on the faculties of Cooper Union and Columbia University. His industrial employment experience included American Cyanamid Corp., 1953- 1957; Stauffer Chemical Co., where he was a section head, 1957-1962; and Lummus Engineering Co., 1962-1970. He founded CHEMTECH in 1971 and was its editor until 1993. He published extensively, including seven years as a columnist, “Perkin”, in the British journal Chemistry and Industry; edited Homogeneous Catalysis, Industrial Applications and Implications (ACS Advances in Chemistry Series 70); and was granted several patents on industrial processes. He was chair of the ACS North Jersey Section in 1976.

Ben is survived by his wife, Renee, of 56 years; a daughter, Nancy, of Chapel Hill, NC; a son, David, of Lexington, MA; and seven grandchildren. Another son, Neil, died in 1987.

When I assumed the editorship of CHEMTECH in spring of 1999, one of the first people to contact me was Ben. I had not met him previously. He congratulated me on landing the position and told me it “was the best job in the world.”

I didn’t meet Ben face-to-face until a few months later, when he visited Washington on the way from his New Jersey home to the one in North Carolina. By that time, in the course of the comprehensive redesign of CHEMTECH, we had decided to change its name to Chemical Innovation. Based on what I had learned of Ben’s-shall we say-feisty reputation, I expected the worst. And sure enough, I was quizzed extensively about the purpose, implications, and desirability of the impending changes.

Once we got through that, a couple of beers, and dinner, Ben evidently became comfortable enough with me and the new incarnation of his “baby” to offer all sorts of support to the magazine. He would distribute complimentary copies of it on his speaking tours. He would suggest and even recruit writers for us. And he would, of course, be a resource for story ideas and tips on how to improve the publication.

By the end of the evening, I summoned the courage to ask for what I really wanted-Ben himself to write for us. I pitched a couple of ideas to him: first, a retrospective of CHEMTECH, to appear in its final issue in December 1999, and second, a revival of The Industrial Chymist, a one-page column to appear on the back page of CI.

After some discussion of the details, Ben agreed to both proposals. The retrospective, “CHEMTECH, a phoenix”, was garnished with anecdotes from others associated with the magazine’s early days and provided a fitting ending to a nearly 30-year-old institution. And, even if it was for only a year, Ben faithfully supplied more than a magazine page’s worth of copy for The Industrial Chymist every month. It was always provocative, always fun, and always delivered well before the deadline. Ben was the consummate professional right up until the time he was no longer able to contribute.

Even during the brief period when he had sufficiently recovered from his surgery to communicate, it was clear that Ben hadn’t lost his touch. In the late fall, after we ran out of recently supplied material, we decided to rerun Industrial Chymists from Ben’s CHEMTECH days. He had suggested some from very early issues, but when we asked him for columns from later years, he replied, “I’m sorry, they’re all packed up, and I can’t get to them. But pick any one-they’re all brilliant.”

He knew himself pretty well.

I saw Ben in person only twice more after that initial meeting, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that, beyond his technical and editorial brilliance, he was most interested in people and their welfare.

Ben, I’ll miss you, but I’ll always keep learning from you.
