Harry Coover, of SuperGlue and programmed innovation, died on 27 March 2011

Harry Coover discovered SuperGlue. Cyanoacrylate, the chemical name for the glue, was first uncovered, as a chemical, in 1942 in a search for materials to make clear plastic gun sights for World War II, but it would not be until 1958 that the chemical was marketed as SuperGlue. Coover worked as a chemist for Eastman Kodak until 1973 and as Vice President of the company from 1973-1984. Coover was later a consultant on programmed innovation methodology.

Coover died at age 94 on March 27, 2011.
