The younger Mr. Becton joined the company in the fall of 1937, the same year he graduated from the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale University. He spent his first year and a half on the road as a salesman for the Company. Returning to the Company's offices in 1939, he was elected to the Board of Directors and he served as Secretary of the Company.

Mr. Becton was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors in May 1972, then Vice Chairman in December 1972. In 1977, he was elected Chairman of the Board again. Then in 1980, at age 65, he retired as Chairman and was Vice Chairman until his retirement from that office in February 1987. He remains Director Emeritus.

Mr. Becton has served as a Trustee of Fairleigh Dickinson University from 1948 to 1994. He also served as a member of the Board of Directors of National Community Bank of New Jersey, now National Community Division of The Bank of New York from 1947 to 1993.

Becton Dickinson Advances After Analyst Says Company Is Poised to Grow Over Next 2 Years

NEW YORK (AP) -- Shares of Becton Dickinson & Co. climbed on Friday after an analyst called the medical technology company "one of the safer plays" in the healthcare sector.

Lazard Capital Markets analyst Jeffrey Frelick said in a client note that Becton Dickinson's medical-supply business, which accounts for 70 percent of its sales, was well-insulated from the risk that Medicare will lower reimbursement rates, while its diagnostic business is involved in high-growth areas.

Frelick said he expected per-share earnings growth of 12 percent in 2008 as well as 2009 for Becton Dickinson, and expected future earnings to be led by growth in revenue from its safety devices, flow cytometry and pharmaceutical systems.

"The company's business is in sound health and, importantly, is not tied to the performance of one or two key products," Frelick said.

Frelick rates Becton Dickinson, based in Franklin Lakes, N.J., a "Buy" and maintains a price target of $104. He predicts earnings per share of $4.94 in 2009, ahead of Wall Street estimates. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial expect the company to earn, on average, $4.84 per share in 2009.

Shares of Becton Dickinson gained $1.93, or 2.3 percent, to $86.12 in afternoon trading.
