'U' prof.
awarded
national
science
honor
By HALLE CZECHOWSKI
Chemical Engineering Professor
Emeritus Donald Katz was one of 11
scientists awarded the National Medal
of Science at the White House in
Washington Tuesday.
Katz is the fourth researcher from
the University to receive the medal,
which is the federal government's
highest award recognizing those who
have made outstanding contributions to
physical, biological, mathematical, or
engineering sciences.
"I THINK IT'S a nice kind of ending
of that part of one's career," said Katz
yesterday.
Katz is best known for his work aiding
the petroleum industry, and pioneered
procedures for extracting, producing,
transporting, and storing natural gas
and petroleum.
He has taught in the College of
Engineering since 1936, after receiving
both a bachelot and doctorate from the
University in 1933. He also served as
department head of the former
chemical and metallurgical
engineering department for 11 years.
In addition to his engineering work,
Katz has written books on his family
geneology and the history of Waterloo,
Michigan, for which he received a
Merit Award from the Michigan
Historical Society.
The chemical engineering depar-
tment has awarded a lecture in Katz's
name each year since 1971 to a
distinguished researcher in the field of
chemical engineering and petroleum
1technology.
Katz is a member of the National
Academy of Engineering and holds 17
principal honors and awards.
Correction
The Daily incorrectly reported Tues-
day that AFSCME dues would be $11.80
if University clericals vote to accept the
union. The amount of union dues would
not be decided until a contract is accep-
ted by union members.
