When it meets next month in Washington, D.C., the society will honor its first class of ACS Fellows. These 162 members "share a common set of accomplishments, namely true excellence in their contributions to the chemical enterprise coupled with distinctive service to ACS or to the broader world of chemistry," says Immediate Past-President Bruce E. Bursten, who championed creation of the program and shepherded it through board approval last year.

Although ACS is late among professional societies in creating a fellows program, "it has many advantages beyond celebrating the excellence of our own," Bursten says. "It will also provide recognition of our members to constituencies outside ACS, such as employers, other scientific societies, and civic groups."

Fellows come from the entire breadth of ACS's membership and the chemical enterprise—including high school teaching, entrepreneurship, government service, and all sectors of industry and academia. Academic chemists make up 72% of the new class of fellows with 15% from industry, 7% retired nonacademic, 5% government, and 1% consultants. Three-quarters of the fellows are men.

Included in the program's design is the provision that all 15 living Priestley Medalists are among the first class of fellows. Two members of the inaugural class, Donald R. Baker and Malcolm L. Sturchio, were nominated and selected as fellows but died before the announcement could be made. They will be honored posthumously.

A ceremony to recognize the fellows will be held on Monday, Aug. 17. Each person will receive a lapel pin and a certificate.
