Vivian K. Walworth
Vivian K. Walworth, 94, died on March 29 in Concord, Mass.
“Vivian was an amazing person and fully engaged until the end. I worked with her closely on the Edwin Land National Historic Chemical Landmark, dedicated at last year’s Boston ACS national meeting. It was a labor of love for her to get this recognition for her longtime mentor and friend. As the events surrounding the dedication unfolded, her smile became larger and larger. I was very pleased that she was able to experience this achievement. The dedication was one of the last of Vivian’s lifetime of achievements.”—Michael P. Filosa, colleague and friend
