He started his career with the DuPont Company in the Textile Fibers Department at the Seaford, Del. plant with later moves to Providence, R.I., Charlotte, N.C. and Kennett Square, Pa. After retiring as an Administrator for DuPont in 1985, Jim and Esther bought a VW camper and traveled the country, eventually visiting 49 states.
