Dr. Dennis Weatherby – African American History Month 2018 #BlackHistoryMonth

Dr. Dennis Weathery was awarded US patent # 4,714,562 on December 22nd, 1987, for one of the most well-known household products: Cascade.

Chemist Dennis W. Weatherby will forever be associated with one of the United States’ most well known household cleaning products, the automatic dishwasher detergent known as Cascade.

Born in Brighton, Alabama in 1960, Weatherby attended Central State University (CSU) in Wilberforce, Ohio, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1982. From there he moved on to the University of Dayton where he completed a master’s degree in chemical engineering in 1984.

Soon after finishing his studies, Weatherby began working for the Procter & Gamble Company in Cincinnati, Ohio, as a process engineer. Almost immediately he had a major breakthrough at the company at the age of just 27. He was given a chance to lead a team to create a new consumer product and the result was a lemon-scented, liquid dishwashing detergent that would become an instant and long-term success.
