Chemical Heritage Foundation names John Baldeschwieler and George Hammond 2003 Othmer Gold Medalists

PHILADELPHIA -- April 2003 -- The Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) has selected two recipients for the 2003 Othmer Gold Medal: John D. Baldeschwieler and George S. Hammond. The award ceremony and the annual Othmer Gold Medal Luncheon will headline the Heritage Day festivities at CHF in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, 12 June 2003.

"This year, we award the Othmer Gold Medal to two multifaceted individuals. John Baldeschwieler is a shining example of what one brilliant person can achieve when committed both to his science and to the betterment of our world," said Arnold Thackray, president of CHF. "He invented analytical techniques that both led to profound advances in fundamental research and provided critical input in the design of security detection equipment now in every airport in the nation. As an entrepreneur, John founded successful companies based on his own research. As a citizen he has advised U.S. presidents for more than 30 years on issues of security and health."

"George Hammond is widely credited with creating the discipline of organic photochemistry, which laid the groundwork for the photochemical production of immensely complex computer chips," said Thackray. "As an educator, he was a major innovator in the teaching of chemistry. After three decades in academe, Hammond led research and development at Allied Signal for nearly a decade. He has received many honors, including the very rare honor of lending his name to an important milestone in chemical discovery--the Hammond postulate.

"Both award winners are outstanding as leaders in science and in business," said Thackray. "They truly embody the multifaceted spirit of the Othmer Gold Medal and add two more eminent names to its distinguished list of recipients."
