Dr. Cherlyn Bradley

    Celebrating United Nations' Int'l Women in Science Day AND #blackhistorymonth, we recognize Chicago ACS' own Dr. Cherlyn Bradley (1951-2014). Named a prestigious American Chemical Society Fellow in 2012, Dr. Bradley's career combined excellent contributions to analytical chemistry (primarily during her 22 years at AMOCO/BP in Naperville, Illinois) and outstanding service to the ACS at local, divisional, and national levels. A Chicago native, she graduated magna cum laude fromIllinois Wesleyan University, earning the Outstanding Senior Award and the Marple-Schweitzer Award for outstanding achievement in Chemistry. She earned her Inorganic Chemistry PhD from Northwestern University in 1978 under Prof. A. Louis Allred, studying synthesis, spectroscopic, electrochemical, and surface analysis of linear permethylpolysilanes. She remains dear to many in the Chicago ACS. Read more about her here:
