Wallace R. Roy
Wallace R. Roy of Orlando, Florida, was a 1926 Clemson chemical engineering graduate and one of the nation’s leading food technologists. He held at least six patents, four of which relate to the development of frozen orange juice concentrate. A former vice president and board member of Minute Maid and former vice president for technical services for the Coca-Cola Co., he helped develop the Fresca and Fanta brands. He also maintained a lifelong relationship with Clemson. He was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 1977 for accomplishments in track, football and basketball. In 1986, he received the Alumni Association’s highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award. After Roy passed away in 2009 at age 97, his daughter, Patty Roy Edwards, established an endowment through the Clemson University Foundation to fund the Dr. Wallace R. Roy Distinguished Professorships.
