Mr. ArnoIcl was born in Springfield, Missouri, where he re- ceiveci his early education. He earner! his B.S. in chemical engineering in 1932 and his M.S. in 1941 from Washington Uni- versit,v in St. Louis. In 1969 Washington University recognizes! Mr. Arnold as a distinguished graduate and in 19S3 awarded him an honorary doctor of science clegree. He joined the re- search department of Phillips in 1937 and became manager of research and development in 1950 and vice-president in 1964. He held this position until his retirement in 1976. Mr. ArnoIcl played a pivotal role in Phillips's entry into petrochemicals, leacl- ing first the research effort and later the management teams that ma(le Phillips a major producer of synthetic rubber, polyolefin plastics ancl fibers, engineering polymers, fertilizers, en cl a host of other products and processes associated with petrochemicals en c! petroleum refining. For his leaclership in research related to treatment of natural gas and gas liquids, he received the HanIon Award from the Gas Processors Association in 1975. He was the author of a text on hydrofluoric acid alkylation and held twenty- two U.S. patents. 7

At the international level, he was chair- man of the finance committee and the executive committee of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (TUPAC), and was a member of the permanent and executive councils of the World Petroleum Congresses, serving as vice- chairman of the U.S. National Committee from 1965 to 1971.
