The Morris Award for Outstanding Achievement in the History of Modern Chemistry or the History of the Chemical Industry

The Society for the History of Alchemy and Chemistry solicits nominations for the 2012 John and Martha Morris Award for Outstanding Achievement in the History of Modern Chemistry or the History of the Chemical Industry. This award honours the memory of John and Martha Morris, the late parents of Peter Morris, the editor of Ambix, who has contributed the endowment for this award.

The Morris Award is administered by a sub-committee on behalf of SHAC. The recipient chosen to receive the Morris Award will be expected to deliver a lecture at a meeting of SHAC, where the awardee will be presented with an appropriate framed photograph, picture or document and the sum of £300. The award is international in scope, and nominations are invited from anywhere in the world.
