Faculty Scholarship and Achievement - April 3, 2012
Published: 2012-04-03

On Sunday, March 18, Environmental Science professor Jonathan Twining ('84) presented on vernal pools for adults and kids at the Trailside Museum for the Mass Audubon Society.

A major review paper by Professor Lowell H. Hall ('59), Department of Chemistry, has been accepted for publication in a special issue of Current Computer-Aided Drug Design. Professor Hall was invited by the Editor, Dr. Subash Basak, to write a review of Hall’s collaborative work with Professor Lemont B. Kier (Virginia Commonwealth University, School of Pharmacy) to honor the 80th birthday of Professor Kier. The review, Development of Structure Information from Molecular Topology for Modeling Chemical and Biological Properties, deals with the creative work that led to a novel way to describe molecular structure for modeling properties of organic molecules. This review is rather different from standard reviews of a body of work in that it makes use of stories of the creative pathway of discovery and often takes a personal tone. Professor Hall suggests the creative impetus for several of the key ideas, traces the role of imagination, and write of the manner in which Kier and Hall played off each other’s strengths and interests. The review covers 37 years of collaboration in the development of Molecular Connectivity and the Electrotopological State.

Donald Yerxa
('72), professor emeritus of History, released his edited book, British Abolitionism and the Question of Moral Progress in History. The book is a compilation of international historians using the British slave trade abolition as a case study for exploring historical moral progress.
