    Mary Good - In Memorium

    Very sad news that Mary Good, former Chicago Section ACS member, National ACS President, and US Secretary of Commerce (Acting) passed away.  Mary had an amazing career in academia, industry, and government.  She worked at the UOP site in Des Plaines AlliedSignal (now UOP/ Honeywell) as R&D VP.   In addition to  being an outstanding chemist, business person, and administrator, Mary helped many of us develop our careers.  She will be missed very much.
