2 linear feet (1 SB, 2 MB)

Sol Panush was born in 1919, in Sczuczin, Poland. In 1929, he left Poland and came to Detroit, Michigan. Panush graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in chemical engineering in 1946. He was an international expert in automotive color and held over 345 patents worldwide. He was also the inventor of MICA and Micro Ti02 in the automotive industry. Panush died in 2014.
The bulk of this collection relates to Panush’s work as a chemical engineer, specifically automotive coloring. As much as possible, his original order was maintained, including the numbering system he used for his inventions and patents. His binders of notes were dismantled and moved to acid-free folders, but kept in the same order as he had arranged.
