UCLA's Roebling medal streak continues

Posted on Nov. 7, 2011

UCLA graduates Robert C. Newton (BA 1956, MS 1958, PhD 1963) and Juhn G. Liou (PhD 1969) were the 2010 and 2011 recipients of the Roebling Medal. The highest award of the Mineralogical Society of America, it recognizes scientific eminence as represented primarily by scientific publication of outstanding original research in mineralogy. The 2012 winner was just announced, and it has gone to the third UCLA alumnus in a row - Harry W. Green II (BA 1963, MS 1967, PhD 1968), Distinguished Professor at UC Riverside, and the 2011  ESS Distinguished Alumni Lecturer. Congratulations to Harry, and to Bob and Louie as well!
