            Peter Entien Wei, 92, was born in Shaowu, Fukien, China on January 19, 1926. He came to the United States in 1949 to attend the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Upon graduation in 1953 he went to graduate school at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his PhD in chemistry in 1959 and went to work for Esso Research and Engineering Company in New Jersey. His focus was on rubber and polymer chemistry because he was working mostly on tire projects. In 1968 he left Esso (now Exxon) and went to work for a small company in Fall River, Massachusetts that manufactured elastic thread. He worked there until he retired at age 70.
