When the time came to ask someone to introduce me, I was sorry to learn that Dr. O. F. Tuttle could not oblige, because he was the obvious choice, but I was pleased when Dr. R. H. Jahns came to my rescue. I know that my new colleagues in Chicago (with three MSA Awards in the department now) do not mind me describing this as a Penn State Award, and I am sure that Dr. Jahns' new colleagues at Stanford do not mind me reclaiming him for Penn State on this occasion. When I learned at the last GSA meeting that I had been erected as the 1965 recipient of the MSA Award I was overcome with the shock of surprise and pleasure. The shock has abated, but I still cannot express my feelings adequately I can only assure the nominating committee and the council that this honor is greatly appreciated-very greatly appreciated. Then, like the previous recipients, I take pleasure in thanking my teachers and associates, and in telling you a little about them.
