The presentation will be made during the annual meeting and conference of the Society in Glasgow on July 1-6, and Dr. Armstrong will deliver his medallist address on Thursday, July 4, on “The Past, the Present and the Future”. Previous recipients of the Society's medal, which is one of the highest awards in the chemical industry, include many well-known men whose work forms the basis of modern science. Notable amongst these are the names of Mr. C. F. Cross, a pioneer of the artificial silk industry, Sir James Dewar, Sir Henry Roscoe, Sir William Crookes, Sir Joseph Swan, Dr. Ludwig Mond, Sir W. H. Perkin, and Mr. John Glover, who was the first to receive the award.
