Most polymer scientists who are active today will not remember the years before rubber-like elasticity and polymer solution thermodynamics were understood, when the striking phenomena of high extensibility and strong negative deviations from thermodynamic ideality were mysteries. My own interests in macromolecules began a few years before those problems were solved by H. Mark, M. L. Huggins, P. J. Flory, and their associates. I was exposed to both natural and synthetic polymers as a graduate student, and was puzzled by those and other mysteries.
