      Finally this brilliant scientist is recognized by the U. Let it be known that professor Willson has probably a Longhorn tie in every color available and proudly wore one of them when he was honored at the White House, the American embassy in Japan, and each meeting and reception in Tokyo. When presented with the Japan Prize by the Emperor a black bow tie was required . Had this loyal chemical engineer known of the existence of a university version he would have worn it. An orange tower in his honor was right up there with his other awards and guess what he wore!
