Lecturer Emerita Ieva Reich, Three Alumni Named ACS Fellows

Lecturer Emerita Ieva ReichIn July, the American Chemical Society (ACS) announced its 2013 class of fellows, which includes Ieva Reich, lecturer emerita in the UW-Madison Department of Chemistry.

Reich’s noted contributions to the chemical sciences include the interactive teaching methods she has employed in large lecture courses, as well as her role in advising the the UW-Madison branch of Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society and fostering student interactions with industrial scientists who are members of the Wisconsin Section of the ACS.

Other new fellows with ties to the Department of Chemistry include A.C. Buchanan III (Ph.D. ’78), Peter Dorhout (Ph.D. ’89), and Mary Jane Shultz (B.S. '70).

The 96 new fellows will be honored during a ceremony hosted by Professor Bassam Shakhashiri, immediate past president of ACS, at the fall ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis.

“This is an honor bestowed on members for their outstanding accomplishments in scientific research, education, and public service,” Shakhashiri told Chemical & Engineering News when he announced the 2013 class of ACS Fellows.
