Since the article states that his wife got him interested in the hydrides of boron, that leaves me somewhat in the air, as to how she had that insight. What was her chemistry background, her college major? They must have had some interesting conversations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:39, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
I noticed that in the article it mentions that H.C. Brown joined the Alpha Chi Sigma chapter at Purdue University in 1949. This is impossible as the Beta Nu chapter (Purdue University) of Alpha Chi Sigma was not founded until 1955. I am not sure when he actually did initiate, if anyone could find this information, it would be helpful.
