About Edward L. Paul
Ed Paul was a 1952 graduate of UVA Chemical Engineering and the Navy ROTC program. After serving in the Navy, he received his M.S.E. from Princeton University in 1955 and joined Merck Research labs in Rahway, N.J. Ed worked at Merck for 40 years until his retirement as executive director, chemical engineering research and development, in 1994. In 1995, he was recognized with UVA Engineering’s Distinguished Achievement Award. We are thankful for Ed’s contributions to the chemical engineering profession, the pharmaceutical industry, and his impact on human health. In 2016, the Department of Chemical Engineering at UVA established the Edward L. Paul Lecture to create opportunities to connect our faculty with industry leaders. Earlier this year, Ed passed away. To honor his legacy, Michael King created the Edward and Lois Paul Excellence in Music award to recognize an outstanding chemical engineering undergraduate who also has a love of music, as Ed was as passionate about music as he was chemical engineering.
