Download PDF for this date

Again, a German Jew has been honored for scientific achievement. He is Dr. Richard Willstaetter of Munich, like Professor Albert Einstein, a Nobel Prize winner. He has just been awarded the Willard Gibbs Medal for 1933, outstanding American distinction in the realm of chemistry bestowed annually by the Chicago Section of the American Chemical Society.

The medal will be conferred on Dr. Willstaetter in Chicago on September 13 during the eighty-sixth meeting of the American Chemical Society, which will be held in connection with the Century of Progress Exposition. A distinguished group of scientists from Europe and America will witness the ceremony.
