About the Event

Mel Visser is a chemical engineering graduate of Michigan Technological University who studied graduate chemistry

at Western Michigan University prior to a 36-year career at The Upjohn Company. On retirement as V.P. of

Environmental, Health, and Safety in 1995, he wondered why banned PCBs remained at constant levels in

the Great Lakes. Extensive Arctic travel and research eventually resulted in understanding of the source,

transport, fate, and effect of PCBs, and the publication of Cold, Clear, and Deadly: Unraveling a Toxic

Legacy by Michigan State University Press (2007). He is a founding member of the Kalamazoo River Community Advisory Group.
