Chemical Industry Medal

 

History and Purpose: The Chemical Industry Medal, established in 1933, replaced the coveted Grasselli Medal, which had been sponsored by the Grasselli Chemical Company and awarded by SCI America for more than a decade. Presentation of the Chemical Industry Medal is made annually to a recipient who has rendered conspicuous service to chemical industry medalapplied chemistry and is selected by the SCI America Executive Committee.  The Chemical Industry Medal is a testimonial to men and women whose leadership, foresight, and contributions to applied chemistry have been, to a considerable degree, responsible for the growth of that industry. A desire to honor such people, those who have made a personal contribution to the advance of society and economy through technology, is at the core of the America Group’s identity. For over 100 years, leaders of the Group, all of whom operate at the highest ranks of American industry, have been enthusiasts for the excitement of the possibilities that can flow from marrying science with industry. The medal has attained distinction by reason of the outstanding achievements and caliber of those who have been honored The Chemical Industry Medal is conferred at a special banquet held in honor of the winner at New York’s famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Throughout the 20th century, and now in the 21st century, these events have been regarded as ‘must attend’ occasions
