SCIENTISTS RECEIVE MEDALS FROM REAGAN
LEAD: President Reagan today presented the nation's highest awards for achievement in science and technology, lauding the winners as ''the heroes of the modern age.''
President Reagan today presented the nation's highest awards for achievement in science and technology, lauding the winners as ''the heroes of the modern age.''
In a brief Rose Garden ceremony, Mr. Reagan presented 20 Medals of Science and four National Medals of Technology to recipients ranging from Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, the heart surgeon, to Dr. James A. Van Allen, the space scientist.
Mr. Reagan said the winners of the awards had ''put their genius to work and the results are phenomenal.''
The White House said the following were recipients of the National Medal of Science, which was authorized by Congress in 1959: PHILIP H. ABELSON, former editor of Science Magazine, for his ''path-breaking contributions in radiochemistry, physics, geophysics, biophysics, and biochemistry.'' ANNE ANASTASI, professor emeritus, Fordham University, for her work ''in the development of the discipline of differential psychology as a behavorial science.'' ROBERT BIRD, professor of chemical engineering, University of Wisconsin, for ''his profoundly influential books and research on kinetic theory, transport phenomena, the behavior of polymeric fluids and foreign language study for engineers and scientists.'' RAOUL BOTT, Higgins professor of mathematics, Harvard University, for ''his profound studies in the topology of Lie groups and differential geometry over many decades, in particular his periodicity theorem.'' Dr. DE BAKEY, director, DeBakey Heart Center, Baylor College of Medicine, for ''his pioneering medical innovations throughout his medical career.'' THEODOR DIENER, research plant pathologist, United States Department of Agriculture, for ''the discovery of viroids, the smallest known agent of infectious disease.'' HARRY EAGLE, director, cancer research center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, for ''research in the development of reproducible conditions for the growth in culture of human and animal cells.'' WALTER ELSASSER, professor of physics, Johns Hopkins University, for his ''fundamental and lasting contributions to physics, meterology, and geophysics in establishing quantum mechanics, atmospheric radiation transfer, planetary magnetism and plate tectonics.'' MICHAEL FREEDMAN, professor of mathematics, University of California at San Diego, for a mathmatical proof that is ''one of the greatest achievements in mathematics in this century.'' WILLIAM JOHNSON, professor emeritus, Stanford University, for his ''outstanding achievements in organic synthethis.'' HAR GOBIND KHORANA, professor of biology and chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for his ''innovative contributions that significantly contributed to our understanding of gene structure, membrane function and vision.'' PAUL C. LAUTERBUR, professor, college of medicine, University of Illinois, for ''first proposing and demonstrating the use of nuclear magnetic resonance to form images.'' RITA LEVI-MONTALCINI, director, Laboratory of Cell Biology, Rome, for her ''discovery of the nerve growth factor, which set the stage for worldwide studies of the molecules involved in normal and malignant growth.'' GEORGE PAKE, group vice president, the Xerox Corporation, for his ''commitment to creative excellence in support of institutional purpose.'' H. BOLTON SEED, professor of civil engineering, University of California at Berkeley, for his ''pioneering contributions to the art and science of civil engineering.'' GEORGE J. STIGLER, professor emeritus, University of Chicago, for his ''efforts to advance the understanding of industry, its internal organization and relations to government.'' WALTER H. STOCKMAYER, professor emeritus, Dartmouth College, for his ''fundamental contributions to the physical chemistry of high polymers.'' MAX TISHLER, professor emeritus, Wesleyan University, for his ''profound contributions to the nation's health and the impact of his research on the practice of chemistry.'' Dr. VAN ALLEN, professor emeritus, University of Iowa, for his ''central role in the exploration of outer space, including the discoveries of the magnetospheres of Earth, Jupiter, and Saturn.'' ERNST WEBER, professor emeritus, Polytechnic Institute of New York, for his ''distinguished and pioneering contributions to the profession of electrical engineering and allied areas, which inspired several generations of students and colleagues around the world.''
The winners of the National Medal of Technology, established by Congress in 1980, were the following: JOSEPH CHARYK, former president of the Communications Satellite Corporation, for ''employment of the concept of the geosynchronous communications satellite system as a basis for a global telecommunications system.'' W. EDWARDS DEMING, private consultant, for ''his forceful promotion of statistical methodology, for his contributions to sampling theory and for his advocacy to corporations.'' JOHN FRANZ, the Monsanto Corporation, for ''his discovery of the herbicidal properties of glyphosates, which have had significant consequences upon the production of agricultural food and fiber.'' ROBERT N. NOYCE, former president and chairman, the Intel Corporation, for his ''inventions in the field of semiconductor integrated circuits, (and) for his leading role in the establishment of the microprocessor.''
