The Stauffer Chemical company was founded in 1886 in San Francisco as a partnership between two young Europeans; a German,John Stauffer, Sr., and a Frenchman, Christian de Guigne. Ships exporting borax to Europe used sulfur as ballast. This ballast/sulfur became the inexpensive raw material for the newly formed company. The company was incorporated by John Stauffer, Sr., who died on March 4, 1940 at the age of 78. In 1931, the company announced plans for a new manufacturing subsidiary, the Pacific Hard Rubber Company. The John Stauffer Laboratory for Physical Chemistry, the John Stauffer Chemistry Building at Stanford University, and the John Stauffer Science Center at Whittier College are all named after him.
