Goldstein Receives Atomic Energy Commission's Lawrence Memorial Award

Dr. Herbert Goldstein, professor of nuclear engineering, was one of five American scientists named to receive the Atomic Energy Commission's Ernest Orlando Lawrence Memorial Award for 1962.

The scientists were chosen by an advisory committee to the Commission and their selection was approved by President Kennedy. Each winner will receive a citation, a medal, and $5,000.

The award is given annually to not more than five US citizens 45 years of age and under who have made recent meritorious contributions to the development, use or control of atomic energy in all sciences related to atomic energy.

Prof. Goldstein came to Columbia in 1961. He was previously associated with the Nuclear Development Corportation of America, where he made significant contributions to reactor physics.
