Esther Conwell

av1235_ConwellPortrait.previewThank you to David Epley, who passed along this link in remembrance of University of Rochester Professor of Chemistry Esther Cronwell.    The article states that “Conwell was awarded the National Medal of Science by President Obama in 2010. She was a pioneer in the field of semiconductor research which university officials say ultimately revolutionized modern computers.”

The picture above is a portrait of Conwell in 1960 as a Society of Women Engineers Achievement Award recipient.  Photo used with permission of  The Walter P. Reuther Library.

If any GGSTEM readers would like to add a personal remembrance, that would be super!
