He was also a very open-minded scientist. I submitted a paper to The Journal of the Society of Rheology back around 1974. In it I showed that an equation he proposed did not correctly describe polymer behavior. He overruled one of his own editors, said my approach was correct and accepted the paper for publication. (I corrected my misspelling of his name when I made the final revisions.)
