BLOOMINGTON — Peter Eugene Throckmorton, Ph.D. (organic chemistry), of Bloomington, passed away at age 88 at 5 p.m. Monday (Jan. 18, 2016) at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, Bloomington.

which I appreciated very much.

My father was very proud of this photograph of himself

as a young scientist with a microscope that he used at work,

but the local newspaper, The Pantagraph, cropped it off.
