Arnold O. Beckman, Ph.D. 
1900-2004. Former professor at CalTech, invented the first commercially successful electronic pH meter in 1934. On the strength of this invention, he founded Beckman Instruments, which continues to thrive today as Beckman Coulter, Inc.. According to the Beckman Institute website, "Arnold Beckman and Mabel Meinzer (1900-1989) were married in 1925. Throughout her life, Mrs. Beckman was deeply involved in Beckman Instruments, Inc., and shared Dr. Beckman's devotion to philanthropic causes. Testaments to the Beckmans' generosity toward education and research can be seen in the creation of the Beckman Institute at the California Institute of Technology, the Beckman Laser Institute at the University of California at Irvine, Stanford University's Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Engineering, and the Center for the History of Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois. The beneficence of the Beckmans toward the U of I's Beckman Institute continues to be felt through the ongoing financial assistance from the The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation."
