Cameron Univ. Chemistry Professor Elected President-Elect of American Chemical Society


Record, Journal, THE JOURNAL RECORD


E. Ann Nalley, a professor of chemistry in Cameron University's physical sciences department, has been elected president-elect of the American Chemical Society, the largest scientific society in the world with about 160,000 members and 800 student chapters. The 35- year Cameron veteran is the first Oklahoman and the first person from a regional, four-year university to hold the post, and she is only the fifth woman in the ACS's 128-year history to be placed in line for the presidency.

When I think of my picture hanging next to Linus Pauling and Glenn Seaborg (past ACS presidents and Noble Prize winners), both big names of the American Chemical Society, it just blows my mind, she said. It's still sinking in. I keep pinching myself thinking I'll wake up, but I haven't yet, so it must be real.

Joining the ACS in 1972, she has served in many capacities, including most recently as a member of the executive committee of the board, and as the director of District V. She has also served on the board of directors for the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi for the past 21 years and was the society's national president from 1995- 98.
