    When Lamott duPont resigned as President of the Du Pont Company during World War II, Walter S Carpenter was selected to head the company, the first person outside the du Pont family to run the company. Walter was the brother in law of a du Pont. Walter's son got the position through his father, but primarily because of his exceptional success in his part of the company.
