John Higgins Wallace Jr., who this summer-
after two decades of association with industrial
laboratories and manufacturing concerns — has
transferred his remarkable abilities and energies
to a new sphere and is "working harder than ever"
as Assistant Director of Princeton University's
James Forrestal Research Center. At age 45, a time
of life when few men exchange the rewards and
responsibilities of private enterprise for the bur-
dens of research in the national interest, Wallace is
now struggling with the myriad, brow-wrinkling
details of organizing and developing facilities which
will ultimately be manned by a staff of.200 persons.
Marking the eighth time in his career he has un-
dertaken the job of "building a laboratory from th
would be "Chemical Laboratory, Princeton, N. J."
After carrying off his bachelor's degree with Phi
Beta Kappa honors in 1928, he took his master's
degree here and received his doctorate in chem-
istry in 1932. From 1934 until his University ap-
pointment was announced early in June, he made
his name as a research and production executive
number of concerns, including Wallace
Laboratories, Carter Products, the Standard Insula-
tion Company and the Decvl Pharmacal Company.
Wallace, a native of Greenville, Kentucky, has
long been a driving force in Princeton commu-
nity life. A founder and former Treasurer of the
Community Chest, he has in the past seven years
made a tremendous contribution to this area's
ground up, the current operation presents an in- well being as Treasurer and Trustee of Princeton
finitely greater challenge than anything Wallace Hospital, to \ ' "
has previously tackled. Where in the past he has
brought into being establishments ranging in size
from one to 15 research units, he and Center Direc-
tor Daniel Clemens Sayre are planning acres of
laboratory, administrative and shop space and are
meeting the needs and demands of representatives
of the Departments of Aeronautical Engineering,
Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Mathematics,
Mechanical Engineering and Physics.
It was perhaps with a sense of prophecy that 23
years ago Wallace noted in the annals of Prince-
ton's graduating class that his permanent address
vhich in peak periods he gives as much
as 24-to-36 hours a week. In 1949 he entered the
political arena and was elected to the traditionally
Republican Township Committee. Among his other
interests is the Country Day School, which he
serves as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
For his devotion to scientific research that was
once termed James Forrestal's "intellectual pas-
sion"; for playing a major role in a project which
well may be the most important step Princeton has
taken since it declared itself a University; for de-
riving a sense of accomplishment from "doing the
spadework for others; he is
