For those familiar with the field of chemical engineering, does the name Maxine V Haynes ring a bell? She graduated from Purdue University. Her. B.S. was in chemical engineering (1949). She is supposed to have written two books and two study guides on Heat. She and her husband ended up in Rhode Island where she was Career Development Director. I have a friend who is wanting to find her books. I have no idea. I don't read many physics books.
If it helps, her husband (given name?) Haynes, with a Ph.D. in Industrial engineering (1958), was professor at University of Rhode Island. They gave a sizeable donation to Purdue University. All these facts were passed to me in hopes I'd recognize her books. I though of my Physics friends. Maybe someone recognizes her? Or her books?
