Born 28 December, 1919 in Chicago, Illinois, Armand Winfield did the precursory work that led to the field of electronic encapsulations as well as art, medical, and biological embedding. He has done extensive research and development in the areas of plastics in architecture and building, art, museum work, industry (applications engineering), low cost housing for developing countries, and in the entertainment field (stage sets, amusement parks, etc.). A long-time resident of Santa Fe, N.M., he became active in the Santa Fe Crime Stoppers program and received an award for his service in 1991. In 1993 Winfield relocated to Albuquerque, N.M. to become Director of the Training and Research Institute for Plastics at the University of New Mexico.
