He was a renowned chemical engineering scientist and professor of chemical engineering for 40 years at the University of He was a renowned chemical engineering scientist and professor of chemical engineering for 40 years at the University of Notre Dame. He invented the spinning basket reactor, which significantly impacted experimental work in catalytic reaction engineering. He was also a multifaceted renaissance man who enjoyed opera, literature, and college football. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, on September 13, , and graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School, where he played as a single-wing halfback on the school football team, with less than notoriety, given the inadequacy of his small frame to play in such sport.
As an undergraduate he cultivated his interest in Italian opera, in classical music as a member of the Glee Club, and in the humanities he minored in English literature. He also became a devotee of St. Thomas of Aquinas, who was introduced to him in the required theology course taught by the famed Theodore Hesburgh, who went on to become Notre Dame president for 35 years. According to his daughter, Alison Carberry Kiene, the story was that Leon tutored her Dad in freshman chemistry and laid the foundation for his textbook, Chemical and Catalytic Reaction Engineering and her Dad helped Leon win the Heisman Trophy with his football knowledge.
Upon graduation in Jim joined the Explosives Department of the DuPont Company as a process engineer, but his colleagues encouraged him to pursue a PhD at Yale University, where he in enrolled in At Yale he further cultivated his engineering and other interests, developing a cordial and active professor-student relationship that characterized his later academic rapport with his students.
In he obtained his PhD in the fluid mechanics of reactors and returned to DuPont Engineering Research Laboratory, a site well known for the presence of many pioneers in the field of chemical and reaction engineering.
They became his mentors and prepared him for his future academic career. During this period he also learned catalysis by taking courses at Johns Hopkins University under the famous Paul H. With the support of the department chairman, the faculty, and by then President Hesburgh, the PhD program in chemical engineering was started, and with it a spectacularly fruitful period of maturation for the department. He is also known for early work on oscillating catalytic reactions, all of which gained him recognition in both academia and industry.
He received numerous awards and recognitions. In — he was an NSF senior fellow at Cambridge University, a position that allowed him to dialogue with the pioneers in the field in the United Kingdom and to lecture extensively in Europe. In he received the Yale Engineering Association Award for the Advancement of Pure and Applied Science, and in was one of the cofounders of the US-Soviet Working Group in Catalysis, a bilateral agreement for the exchange of information in catalysis.
In he received the prestigious R. He also became a member of the Chemical Engineering Department advisory board of Princeton University — , and was named in a fellow of the American Institute of Chemists and in a visiting and life fellow at Clare Hall, Cambridge University. In he received the first award for excellence in reaction engineering given by the Autoclave Engineers company, which produced a similar commercial version of his reactor.
He was a visiting professor and fellow at Cambridge University in , a visiting fellow at Princeton University in —, and a visiting professor at Stanford University in He cultivated his love for things Italian by lecturing at the University of Naples, the University of Rome, and the Politecnico di Milano.
Murphree Award in Industrial and Engineering Chemistry for his pioneering research in catalysis and reaction engineering. Author of Chemical and Catalytic Reaction Engineering McGraw-Hill, , which has been published worldwide, and former coeditor of the prestigious journal Catalysis Reviews Science and Engineering, he published more than technical and scientific papers. Recognition for his work and contribution culminated with his election in to the National Academy of Engineering.
His technical recognitions do not reflect the eclectic, colorful, and outspoken personality of Jim Carberry, always the center of attention in any gathering in which he participated. He held firm views about society through his reading of the classics, Aquinas, and Jacques Maritain and about the future of chemical engineering.
He believed that civilized society should engage in civilized discourse among civilized persons, a far cry from the modern world. In chemical engineering education he advocated that the roots of the profession, which started in chemistry and then added physical engineering phenomena, should go back to applied chemistry. When we look at what chemical engineering departments around the country are doing today, we can appreciate that this was a rather prophetic view.
Alison remembered her father as: "Ever the Renaissance man. He figured that if they were silly enough to want his biography in music, he would be silly enough to submit a spoof, which their editors would surely catch. They did not, and it was published.
A few notes to appreciate his humor: He stated that he received a diploma [from the] Accademia delle Nero Gatto and a diploma [from the] Scuola di Grande Massimo. My Father so loved the University of Notre Dame. The department would not be what it is today without his academic and professional leadership.
