tional Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Society, and the Damon Runyan-Walter Winchell Foundation. She has been editor of Acta Crystallographica since 1987 and was instrumental in the founding of a new journal for macromolecular compounds (Section D).

Apart from all these accomplishments that are recorded, there is another important aspect to Jenny's career as a scientist. Many have benefited from her ability to act as a good mentor, and through her own example she has served as an extraordinary role model for many women scientists. Jenny has the ability to inspire an independent curiosity in those fortunate enough to have worked with her. Her legendary generosity and enthusiasm extend from helping former students get started in setting up their own laboratories, to the invitations she has given to scientists in countries whose laboratory experiences were limited. Her laboratory is a Mecca for crystallographers from other countries and a truly international place, with visitors from England, Australia, Poland, Germany, Japan, India, Italy, and Israel, just to name a few. This exchange of ideas has a beneficial effect on all participants.

Jenny is also generous at home. She and Don regularly entertain guests. A perusal of their guest book finds everyone from Nobel Prize winners to undergraduate students. The combination of her research accomplishments, her integrity, her caring attitude, and her ability to remain modest, sincere, and forthright makes Jenny Glusker an outstanding and rare scientist.
