From an unknown author at the Braun Corporation (and carbon copied to its president, J.A. Hartley). The author wants Aldoph Coors (the brewing magnate) to meet Arnold O. Beckman during Beckman's trip to promote his new pH meter, to the benefit of both CalTech and Coors Porcelain Company. It is unclear whether this Braun Corporation grew into one of the corporations that today bears the same or a similar name.
Arnold Beckman invented his first pH meter in 1934 at the request of a chemist from the California citrus industry, who needed an accurate way to measure the acidity of his product. The resulting instrument kicked off rapid development not only of Beckman Instruments, Inc. but also of the electronic scientific instrument industry.
