Chemist Celebrates 55 Years with FPL

Assuming you were already born, what were you doing in 1966?

Designer Mary Quant introduced the mini skirt, Simon & Garfunkel reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their iconic hit, “The Sound of Silence,” and both the Star Trek and Batman series debuted on TV.

And if your name was Linda Lorenz, you were fresh out of college, starting your first day as a chemist at the Forest Products Laboratory.

Linda is still here, conducting her experiments and celebrating her 55th anniversary at FPL.
