PREVIEW OF FALL 1959
AND SPRING 1960 MEETINGS
The themes of the symposia for the Fall and
Spring meetings of the Division of Chemical Literature
have been announced by the Program Chairman, Charles
The three symposia to be presented at Atlantic
City with their chairmen are as follows:
Technical Writing for Specialized Purposes
Mrs. Irlene Roemer Stephens
Summit, New Jersey
Technical Information Services in Industry
Miss Hanna Friedenstein
Godfrey L. Cabot, Inc.
38 Memorial Drive
Cambridge 42, Massachusetts
Charles Zerwekh, Jr.
Humble Oil and Refining Company
P. 0. Box 3950
If you have .a paper for presentation but have
delayed action for some reason at the Fall meeting,
contact the proper Symposium Chairman immediately.
He will have instructions on submission of a 200 word
abstract. In addition, six copies of the final draft of
the papers must be in the hands of the individual
Symposium Chairmen by July 1, 1959.
A very interesting Spring, 1960, Program at
Cleveland is being planned. Why not get on with some
good papers now so that you will be prepared. The
Symposia are as follows:
The Literature of Rocket Fuels
Wyandotte Chemical Corporation
The Literature of Forensic (Legal) Chemistry
Charles Pfizer and Co., Inc.
11 Barlett Street
Brooklyn 6, New York
T. E. R. Singer
52 Vanderbilt Avenue
New York 17, New York
A 200-word abstract suitable for publication
should reach the respective chairmen by December 1,
1959. Six copies of the completed paper are due by
February 1, 1960.
Incidentally, the Program Committee appears
to have a whole bag of tricks up its sleeve. For example,
it is understood, via a responsible source close to the
committee, that we may have a 'Social Hour' instead
of the usual luncheon at Atlantic City. Also, the same
source indicates special plans are being made for the
meeting in Cleveland. We hope to have more on the
agenda for you in the Fall issue.
