While pagiong through the most recent MRS bulletin I was suprised to see 
that that Dick Stein is scheduled to receive the Materials Research 
Society's von Hippel Award for 1999. The award will be given on 1 
December 1999 at 6 pm in Salon E of the Boston Marriott Hotel. I urge 
those of you who are in Boston for the MRS meeting to attend that session 
and hear Dick Talk on "Studies of Polymers with Radiation."

Dick's involvement with scattering methods to characterize polymeric 
materials has always been a dominant theme in his career, which spans 
more than 50 years.

Those of us who have had occasion to work directly with Dick or who have 
benefitted from his involvement in many other activities of the 
scattering community have always found him to be more than willing to 
give of himself to advance the cause of our science. I have always found 
him to be a genuinely nice guy as well.

This award is richly deserved. I hope that everyone in the scattering 
community will join me in extending congratulations to Dick on this happy
