"Teddy G. Traylor"

(1925 - 1993)
Teddy G. Traylor (1925 - 1993) never graduated from high school, but after the war, where he served in the Merchant Marine, he received his Ph.D. at UCLA with Saul Winstein and then was a postdoctoral fellow with Paul Bartlett at Harvard. He was the first organic chemist hired at UCSD, where he was a pioneer in organometallic chemistry. Teddy was the first to publish papers on superstructured porphyrins, and his research on oxygen binding and P-450 chemistry was seminal for the past two decades. His love of chemistry was surpassed only by his love of life. We are sorry that he is not with us to still enjoy them.
