The Oral History Project of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University, led by Charles Wilcox and Kelly Strickland, presents this DVD of an extended interview with a senior member of the faculty in which they share their lifes journey, their professional interests and their reflections about the distinctive character of their department and its nurturing environment. Their comments reveal some of the aspects that make this an exemplary academic unit. Short biographies of interviewee and interviewer are included, in addition to a photo gallery and list of publications of the interviewee.

Simon Bauer's papers deal with molecular structure determinations by electron diffraction, EXAFS and spectroscopic techniques, measurement of the physical and thermochemical properties of the boranes, kinetics of fast reactions and spectral emissions at high temperatures, as studied in shock tubes and in chemical laser systems, and models of nucleation / condensation processes.

He was a Guggenheim Fellow (1949), an NSF Senior Postdoctorate Fellow (1962) at CNRC and the Weizmann Institute, NAS Interacademy Exchange Fellow (USSR, 1966). In 1979 he received an Alexander von Humboldt Award and spent 6 months at the Max Planck Institute in Garching-Munchen.
