Hanlon A Rutgers University graduate in chemistry, Joseph F. Hanlon had a distinguished career in packaging, beginning at White Laboratories where he started a packaging department in 1935. He went on to work for Johnson & Johnson, where he also established a packaging department and then held packaging positions at both American Cyanamid and Hoffman-LaRoche. After 10 years at Hoffman-LaRoche, he spent another decade consulting in the legal aspects of packaging. The Handbook of Package Engineering, which was first published in 1973, quickly became the basic reference text for packaging professionals and students. He revised the book for a second edition in 1983 and was at work on the third edition at the time of his death in 1996. He was elected to the Packaging Education Forum's Packaging Hall of Fame later that year for his contributions to the packaging profession. Robert J. Kelsey Bob Kelsey holds a degree in food technology, a co-major in bacteriology and minors in both chemistry and process engineering from the University of Massachusetts, a certificate in mechanical engineering from the U.S. Navy, and certificates for courses in electronic engineering from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Early in his career, he served as engineering editor of Food Engineering. At Modern Packaging magazine, he was successively engineering editor, editor-in-chief, and executive editor. He helped establish the Center for Packaging Science and Engineering at Rutgers University, where he has served as an adjunct professor of Packaging Law and Regulation. Since 1973, he has been president of Kelsey Corp., a consulting engineering firm specializing in structural packaging design and machine systems engineering. In 1990 he was elected to the Packaging Education Forum's Packaging Hall of Fame. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Packaging Professionals, a Lifetime Member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and belongs to the Society of Manufacturing Engineers' Machine Vision and Robotics International Divisions, and the American Society for Testing Materials Committees F-2 and D-10 for flexible and corrugated packaging. He is a long-time member of IoPP's Eastern Equipment Committee. Hallie E. Forcinio Hallie Forcinio has worked as a freelance journalist since January 1993. A specialist in packaging topics and technology issues, she writes regularly for Pharmaceutical Technology and BrandMarketing. She also is a contributor to Automatic ID News, Managing Automation and Packaging Technology & Engineering magazines. Her communications career includes 10 years as an editor on Food & Drug Packaging. She is a member of the Institute of Packaging Professionals, the International Packaging Press Organisation, the Interational Association of Business Communicators and the American Society of Business Press Editors. She has been listed in Who's Who in the Midwest, Who's Who of Emerging Leaders in America, Who's Who in the Media and Communications and Who's Who of American Women. An award-winning journalist, her publications experience began in college on the campus newspaper. She is a cum laude graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College, a liberal arts school in Berea, Ohio.
