Stone Award Honors Southern Chemists
The Carolina-Piedmont Section of the American Chemical Society will be accepting nominations through May 15 for the Charles H. Stone Award. Stone, who founded the Carolina-Piedmont Section in 1943, was a native North Carolinian and a pioneer in the chemical and dyestuff industry. Income from the Stone Trust Fund, provided in his will, supports administration of this award.
Since Stone's death in 1969, this regional group has presented one annual prize, designed to provide incentive for excelling in chemistry. The prize is open to researchers, educators, and industrial chemists in any field, with only one restriction: The recipient must live in ACS' Southeastern region.
The honored chemist will receive a plaque, a cash award of $1,000, and travel expenses for the award banquet, at which he or she will deliver an address highlighting the area of the award. For more information, contact Robert W. Callahan,...
