General view of Dow Chemical Company engineer Ray McIntire (1918-1996) posed with a Santa Claus figurine carved out of Styrofoam. McIntire invented foam polystyrene in 1941 while working in Dow's Chemical Physics Lab. "Styrofoam," as McIntire's invention was subsequently branded, properly refers to the Dow Chemical Company’s trademarked brand of closed-cell extruded polystyrene foam commonly used for thermal insulation and craft applications.
