The Last 1929 Lincoln Highway Boy Scout Dies-- Part 4

Bernard Queneau graduated from New Rochelle High School in New York and went to Columbia University and later received his Doctorate in Metallurgy at the University of Minnesota.  He joined the Navy reserve in 1939 and served during World War II.  He developed oxygen tanks for pilots.

After the war, he became U.S. Steel's Chief Metallurgist until his retirement in 1977.

Late in life, he married Esther, the president of the Lincoln Highway Association, whom he met at a LHA function.
