Biography

Philip Morris provided the services of Dr. Eichorn to re-evaluate the proposal presented by Drs. Finkner and Sweeney of the Research Triangle Institute at the meeting of the Research Directors of Brown & Williamson, Philip Morris, & L&M at L&M Operations Center in North Carolina on Friday, May 24, 1968. The objective of the meeting was to determine the variation and the amounts of FTC tar exposure which various groups of the population encounter with various cigarettes.(UCSF000001-2) Philip Morris in 1981 (V.

In 1982, the American Red Cross was trying to enact a policy to discourage smoking in its facilities.[1] Eichorn delivered a speech opposing the measure to the American Red Cross on behalf of Philip Morris and the Tobacco Institute in which he stated,

Smoking can, of course, be a source of annoyance to some persons in some situations. The solution to that social problem, however, is application of courtesies, not control of behavior by rules and regulations.[2]
