han 25 years. Baldeschwieler is a successful entrepreneur, academic, and scientist. He pioneered the use of nuclear magnetic resonance, ion cyclotron resonance, and other techniques that have yielded important insights into problems in chemistry and biology. In addition to his academic activities, he has founded and directed three successful pharmaceutical companies: Vestar, NeXstar Pharmaceuticals, and Combion.

He is a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he also serves on a large number of national scientific and advisory committees. He has received the American Chemical Society awards for both pure chemistry and creative invention. Baldeschwieler was honored by President Clinton in 2000 with the National Medal of Science.

In addition, he has served in government for more than 30 years, working on national security issues, combating terrorism, helping Gulf War veterans, and carrying out pioneering work in cooperative science and technology programs with the Soviet Union and China. He served as the deputy director of the Office of Science and Technology in the White House during the Nixon administration. He is currently a managing member of the Athenaeum Fund and a director of the Huntington Medical Research Institutes, Pasadena Entretec, and several privately held companies.

George S. Hammond
George S. Hammond began his academic career at Iowa State College (now University) in 1948, moving to the California Institute of Technology in 1958. At Caltech he continued work on the mechanisms of free radical and ionic reactions, which he had started at Iowa State, and he also brought into full fruition the program in photochemistry that he had begun in Iowa. Between 1960 and 1963, Hammond published the work that led to the creation of organic photochemistry as an academic discipline.

In 1972 he moved to the University of California at Santa Cruz as professor of
