Cornell University Department of Chemistry Newsletter Number 11, August 1972
For those of you who have not been here for some time, here are some data that might be interesting. For example, 3400 students in the Fall of 1971 and 2800 students in the Spring of 1972 were registered for courses offered by the Department of Chemistry. The faculty, responsible for this staggering formal teaching load, managed to conduct research resulting in 184 publications this past year. This was in addition to dozens of invited seminars, etc. Recognition of distinguished achievements in original research came to Lynn Hoard and Roald Hoffman when they were elected to the National Academy of Sciences this Spring. This high honor, bringing honors to Cornell as well as the recipients, is now enjoyed by five members of the Department's faculty.
