He revolutionized the poultry industry by developing ways of separating and binding together chicken meat, then making it stick to its breading--innovations that spawned such snacks as dinosaur-shaped nuggets, chicken hot dogs, turkey ham and dozens of other processed poultry products. Joined Cornell University in 1949 as an assistant professor of poultry science, later became founder and first director of Cornell's Institute of Food Science and Marketing in 1970, retiring in 1989.
