The McElvain Seminar Fund for The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Chemistry was established in 1987, with a gift from Dr. Richard D. and Mrs. Karen A. Mullineaux. In 1951,  Dr. Richard Mullineaux received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from UW-Madison.

This fund honors the memory of Emeritus Professor Samuel M. McElvain, a member of the Chemistry faculty 1923-1961.

The McElvain Seminar Series is organized by chemistry graduate students, and is designed to promote candid discussions between students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and prominent visiting scientists from industries and universities across North America.
