Celebrating Addison Ault’s 50 years at CornellMarch 5, 2012
Addison Ault, who has taught chemistry at Cornell for 50 years, is retiring at the end of the academic year, and the chemistry department is honoring him with a celebration and dinner on April 14.
The event will include a tour of West Science, the sharing of memories of Ault’s impact, string quartet music, dinner, and more. More information is available on the event page, where you can also leave memories of Ault if you’ll be unable to make the celebration.
In a letter sent out to alumni, Craig Teague, associate professor and chair of the chemistry department, wrote that Ault has had a tremendous impact on the lives of generations of Cornellians.
“While 50 years is an incredible length of time to be a professor, far more important is the number of people Addison has inspired over this time,” Teague said. “First and foremost are his students, but he has also influenced countless colleagues both here at Cornell College and elsewhere. For me personally, it has been a true joy and honor to work with him during my time here.”
