Neil P. Ruzic (1931-2004) was a visionary, connector and pioneer in not just one, but four different arenas. He published 250 articles, wrote 12 books and was a publishing innovator. He made the case to Congress in 1965 for going to the moon and authored the transfer technology reports for NASA. He had unshakeable faith in finding more humane and effective ways to fight cancer…which is making our lives better today. Today, the anniversary of man walking on the moon, we celebrate Neil as an outstanding La Porte County native.
