Birth: Jan. 27, 1891, USA
Death: Feb. 4, 1974
Clearwater
Pinellas County
Florida, USA

A 1915 graduate of Valparaiso University, Frank R. Theroux was not only teaching there two years later but also serving as the Dean of VU's engineering school. In 1922 Theroux began work as an instuctor at Cornell, where he earned his civil engineering Masters Degree in 1924. Theroux became a professor at Michigan State in Lansing in 1929 and remained there for the rest of his career. Remarkably, all six of Frank's sons plus his daughter (Louis, Frank Jr., Robert, Paul, Charles, James and Frances) all eventually graduated from MSU -- the largest group of siblings ever to accomplish that feat at Michigan State. Aside from teaching, Frank co-authored several books, including the often reprinted "Labratory Manual For Chemical and Bacterial Analysis of Water and Sewage" (McGraw-Hill, 1943). Theroux also served as a santitary engineer in Miami and Chicago and was the commissioned U.S. Mineral Land Surveyor for Arizona. (His work as a surveyor and draftsman began in 1909, when he was only 18.) Frank R. Theroux is buried next to his wife, Louise, whose maiden name was Sprencel. They married on June 22, 1918.
