Late Researcher Honored with Journal Issue

Robert H. White

Robert H. White

The latest issue of Wood Design Focus, a journal produced by the Forest Products Society, is dedicated to the late Dr. Robert H. White. White was a Research Forest Products Technologist in the Building and Fire Sciences group at the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL). He was an internationally recognized expert whose research significantly impacted fire and safety standards of building materials used in construction.

While the full issue of the journal is available by subscription only, this editorial by FPL Fire Protection Engineer Laura Hasburgh gives a sense of the impact of Robert’s work in the fire research community and the impact his presence had on all of us who were lucky enough to work with him.
