During World War II, Joseph J. Jacobs, Ph.D., ’34 helped develop the mass production of the wonder drug penicillin. He founded Jacobs Engineering Group and took it from a one-man chemical process consultancy to its present status as one of the world’s leading engineering-construction companies with offices on four continents. Dr. Jacobs served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Polytechnic University and, in 1983, received the Hoover Medal, which recognizes the civic and humanitarian achievement of professional engineers.
