Thomas Findley ’42

A research chemist who held 64 patents, including one for epoxy, Thomas died Nov. 1, 2018.

Opposed to materialism, Tom traveled the world in a self-made canoe, driven by the motto “Affluence is the disease, poverty is the cure.” He settled in Canada, where he lived for 30 years in a cabin with no electricity or running water, using solar panels to power his computer.
