Inventing Puzzles is Hobby of Professor
WHEN C. A. Jacobson, professor of chemistry at West Virginia University and the inventor of numerous pieces of laboratory equipment and a calculating machine, needs diversion, he turns to constructing puzzles. His interest in puzzles dates back forty years and he has been inventing them for more than twenty-five. His latest is a complicated block puzzle of unusual construction. One form of this puzzle is intended for use as a base for an inkwell. Professor Jacobson is shown here with a few puzzles from the huge collection he has acquired. One of Jacobson’s earliest puzzles was purchased by the famous Jack London.
