Pittsburgh chemist elected to board of directors of world's largest scientific society

November 18, 1999

C. Gordon McCarty, Ph.D., a former manager with Bayer Corp. in Pittsburgh, Pa., has been elected to the Board of Directors of the world's largest scientific society, the American Chemical Society. His three-year term begins Jan. 1, 2000.

Before retiring in 1999, McCarty spent 10 years as a manager in the university relations division of Bayer. His 35 years of distinguished professional service as a chemist are almost equally divided between academia and industry, having spent 16 years as a professor of chemistry at West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.Va., and the last 19 years with Bayer.

An ACS member since 1957, McCarty has served on many Society committees. He was councilor of the Pittsburgh Section from 1992-98.

McCarty received his Ph.D. (1963) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He completed his B.S. (1957) at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kan. He resides in Coraopolis, Pa.
A nonprofit organization with a membership of nearly 159,000 chemists and chemical engineers, the American Chemical Society publishes scientific journals and databases, convenes major research conferences, and provides educational, science policy and career programs in chemistry. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio. ( http://www.acs.org)
