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

chemistry and vice chancellor of natural science. In 1974 he became foreign secretary of the National Academy of Sciences but retained his professorial position and continued his research program. In 1978 Hammond left the academic world to accept a position as research director at Allied Chemical Corporation (now Allied Signal). His final position at Allied was as executive director for metals, ceramics, and bioscience research. He retired in 1988 but has continued a successful career in both academic and industrial consulting. He now has active working relations with Bowling Green State University, Georgetown University, and Portland State University.

Throughout his career Hammond has had active and creative interests in both teaching and research and has received numerous awards for his work in both. In 1963 he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences, in 1976 he received the Priestley Medal, and in 1994 he received the National Medal of Science. Students of chemistry around the world know him as the formulator of the Hammond postulate and as coauthor of a popular organic chemistry text used by a generation of aspiring chemists.

About the Othmer Gold Medal
The Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) established the Othmer Gold Medal in 1997 to honor outstanding individuals who, like Donald Othmer (19041995), have made multifaceted contributions to our chemical and scientific heritage through outstanding activity in such areas as innovation, entrepreneurship, research, education, public understanding, legislation, or philanthropy.

The medal is presented annually and cosponsored by CHF and four affiliated organizations: the American Chemical Society (ACS), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the Chemists' Club, and the Socit de Chimie Industrielle (American Section). The medal commemorates Donald Othmer--noted researcher, consultant, editor, engineer, inventor, philanthropist, professor, and coeditor of
