Another regional meeting feature is the Women in Chemistry Day on Wednesday, October 31. Dr. Helen M. Free, past President of the American Chemical Society and of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry is the luncheon speaker. Dr. Free, a distinguished chemist who champions women in science, invented and developed the Dip and Read home diabetes test. She is also responsible for improving medical and clinical urinalysis testing.

The Women in Chemistry Day will convene a panel discussion at 10:30 a.m. on October 31 recognizing women and their contributions to science. Presenters include Dr. Free, and Drs. Alison Butler and Sandra Lamb of the University of California at Santa Barbara, and Brenda Makepeace-Cumberland of Goleta, California.

Other meeting highlights include:

  • A history of lead and its additives in gasoline Lead was used by petroleum refiners in the early 1920s to enhance the performance of gasoline and eliminate engine knock. Production changes resulting from orders of the U. S. Surgeon General in the late 1920s, led to an expansion of use nationwide
