ASM Fellows 2014

In 1969, ASM established the Fellow of the Society honor to provide recognition to members for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering and to develop a broadly based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to the society.  Following are the members recognized by their colleagues for 2014.  Additional Fellows may be elected to this distinguished body in subsequent years.  The solicited guidance, which the Fellows will provide, will enhance the capability of ASM as a technical community of materials science and engineering in the years ahead.  Awards will be presented at ASM's annual Awards Dinner, Tuesday, October 14th, in Pittsburgh, PA during Materials Science & Technology 2014 (MS&T'14).
