129 Dr. Fred Meyer had a long and distinguished career. He began college at Wayne (Detroit) at the age
of 16, transferring to the University of Michigan for his senior year, with a major in Chemistry. He then
went to the University of Wisconsin for graduate school, where he met his future wife, Nina Perlstadt.
He finished his PhD in Physical Chemistry in late 1940 and had a post-doc scheduled with Nils Bohr.
However, with the break out of WWII in Europe, the post doc was cancelled. He and Nina married in
February of 1941 in Chicago. So, he went to work for the bureau of Mines in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In 1943 he was called to work on the Manhattan Project and they moved back to Chicago. His part
of the project finished in September 1944 and then he moved to Kansas City, Missouri to teach at the
University of Missouri, Kansas City. Since Nina was nine months pregnant, she remained in Chicago
until after Sarah was old enough to travel, staying with her brother and sister-in-law. Due to the war,
there were no appropriate places to live in Kansas City, so at the end of the academic year, Fred took
a job with Ethyl corporation as a chemist. During this period Ruth was born. While he was there
apparently Ethyl developed a non-sudsing cleaning product. Nina's nephew remembers that they
received many bottles of this product, which did a good job and by the time that their supply finally ran
out, Mr. Clean was on the market (which very much resembled the product that Uncle Fred sent.
After about 8 years with Ethyl Corporation, Fred was tired of office politics and was going to leave Ethyl.
At that time he decided to go back to Wayne (now Wayne State) and pursue his dream field
mathematics. While he was there, (about 1952), he was part of a team that worked on the first
(machine) programming language. He apparently came home and told Nina: "We finally got the
computer to do, what we wanted it to do... and the rest will be history". He finished his PhD in partial
differential equations in the summer of 1959. He had a new job waiting for him at Boeing Scientific
Laboratory in Seattle. When the family arrived in Seattle, after narrowly missing being trapped by the
Yellowstone earthquake, he discovered that the job for which he was hired no longer existed.
However they found other projects for which he was very useful. The Seattle climate did not agree
with Nina, giving her a sinus headache every day. So once again Fred went job hunting and found
two potential positions in Southern California. He chose based on which one was closer to the climate
Nina preferred! Before he left however, he had only time to finish one of two projects that he was
working on. His boss wanted him to finish a particular one, but Fred said that any mathematician could
finish that one; but the other one required both chemistry and mathematics at the PhD level and they
would have a harder time finding someone else qualified to do it. So that was the project he
finished...later we learned that it had to do with the fuels used for the lunar lander. He then moved to
take the job at Aerospace corporation in San Bernardino, California in September of 1963. Nina and
Ruth waited for the house to sell and joined him in late November of 1963 (just prior to the
assassination of President Kennedy). Sarah was attending the University of Washington and moved
down the following June. While at Aerospace he collaborated with his sister-in law Dr. Bessie Lendrum
to develop a three dimensional view of the heart from X rays. She provided the medical expertise and
he worked on the translating slices of two dimensional X rays into a three dimensional picture. He
retired from Aerospace Corporation (in El Segundo, California - having moved when the company was
forced to move). The professional employee's "union" convinced him to work for them for a year, and
he did, finishing a report on Aetna's managed care health insurance, that led to some changes in the
administration of the health insurance, just prior to his death. He had a bad mitral valve, that had been
misdiagnosed as a different heart condition. By the time that it was properly diagnosed, the heart
muscle was so weak that it could not hold the stitches from the new valve. His cardiologist thanked
Nina for seeing to it that his bill was paid by the insurance and she answered "that was Fred's doing" !
He was living in Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, California at the time of his death. However, he died
in Little Company of Mary Hospital, which was in Torrance, Los Angeles, Califoria.
