Ted Erikson holds a B.S. ChE ('52) and an M.S. Chem ('59) from the Illinois Institute of Technology and a Gas-Surface Interaction diploma ('65) from MIT. He spent 23 years at the IIT Research Institute as a Senior Chemist resulting in 2 patents and 9 publications followed by 16 years teaching chemistry, math, and physics in public schools. Water interests evolved from Montana droughts, U.S. Submarine service, and record marathon swims (one still holding at 43 years!), and continues in senior swimming events (USMS). Ted's beacon in life is chaos, defined as, "a state of things where chance is supreme", all things considered.
