Protecting the quality of life since 1944.

Louis C. Pryor

Louis C. Pryor

In Memoriam

Mr. Pryor retired in 1985 after 33 years with duPont Co., much of it outside the U.S. His multinational involvement sprang from his birth in Argentina to American parents, formative years in England, and WWII service in three theaters of operations. With duPont he held senior executive positions in marketing, manufacturing, mining, applied research and corporate administration. His foreign assignments included Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Iran, New Zealand and Nigeria. He was a director and officer of a number of American Chambers of Commerce abroad; primary concerns were free trade and also, in the case of Australia, industrial relations issues. He helped forge an alliance of key business and union leaders that thwarted a Soviet-orchestrated “cold war” move to infiltrate and heavily influence Australian trade unionism. He is a former member of the Palm Beach Public Employee Relations Commission. Mr. Pryor is a graduate in business administration from Henley Business School, University of Reading, England.
