Shreeve's continued promotion of teaching and research in chemistry is paralleled only by her exceptional and distinguished service to the American Chemical Society as a member of editorial boards and local and national committees. Her activities have included service as Inorganic Program chairman for regional meetings; officer and/or councilor of the Washington-Idaho Border Section, the Fluorine Division, and the Inorganic Division; and director of Region VI. She also has served as a member of the Petroleum Research Fund Advisory Board and the Board of Directors of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Currently she is a member of the University of Chicago Board of Governors for Argonne National Laboratory. Her service on editorial boards includes the Journal of Fluorine Chemistry since 1970; Accounts of Chemical Research, 1973- 1975; Inorganic Synthesis since 1976; and Heteroatom Chemistry since 1988. This service reflects her deep and continuing interest in research, which she regards as "important and rewarding . . . to all who are faculty members at a research university."

Today, Shreeve enjoys puttering in the garden, fishing, skiing, and driving fast. Most of all, however, she delights in chemistry and her co- workers, both in the lab and in the research office. A true pioneer, she has left as her legacy to the University of Idaho a distinguished program in chemistry that has achieved international recognition. A co-worker stated that her achievements were possible because of her "own personal creativity, tenacity and love of chemistry."

Most of the information for this essay came from typewritten notes faxed to Cassandra Gissendanner by Dr. Shreeve on December 18, 1995. Some additional information was provided by a colleague of Dr. Shreeve.
