With the year already half over, I am prompted to reflect on the milestones that have occurred for
CINF in the last six months, and what we can expect for the remainder of 1991. Without being
all-inclusive, we can all take pride in the following highlights:
1. The Atlanta meeting in April was most successful. Thanks go to Gerry Vander Stouw and
the other members of his committee, as well as all the speakers and organizers of the various
sessions for the excellent technical programs. I wish to thank each member of the Executive
Committee, the Committee chairs, and all committee members for their diligence and efficiency
in handling the administrative aspects of Division projects and business. And special thanks
to each member who participated in the meeting.
2. The 1991 Patterson-Crane Award was presented to Dr. David R. Lide on May 21, 1991, in
Columbus, Ohio. This award is given by the Dayton and Columbus ACS sections for outstanding
contributions to the field of Chemical Information. Chair-Elect Joe Clark represented
CINF on the selection panel.
3. For the third year, CINF awarded student scholarships for graduate study in library, information,
or computer science. This year the competition was so strong that two awards were made,
to Leana Hankom of Iowa and to Craig Jenkins of North Carolina.
We look forward to:
1. An exciting program at the New York meeting. Please note technical, administrative, and social
schedules elsewhere in the CIB.
2. Presentation of the 1991 Herman Skolnik Award during the New York meeting to Prof. W. Todd
Wipke for his pioneering work in the development of methods for representing and manipulating
3. The conclusion of a successful election (please vote) with a new slate of officers to carry on
the longstanding traditions and success of the Division.
We need your support and your suggestions. There will be many opportunities to interact in New
York - the welcoming reception Sunday evening, the Division luncheon on Tuesday, the reception in
honor of Todd Wipke on Tuesday, the business meeting on Wednesday, to name just a few. Or, if
you prefer, please write or call any of the officers or committee chairs listed in the back of this
This is your division.
