Congratulations to the award recipients recently named at the ICDD Spring Meetings in March!
Daniel has elected to receive his award at the 2010 Annual Meeting of Members. Congratulations, Daniel!
John A. Anzelmo
Over the years, particularly with the passing of XRF expert instructors, Ron Jenkins and Eugene Bertin, John began to accept more responsibility and provide leadership in the development of the clinic curriculum and customized course instruction. He launched the specialized, annual workshop, “Specimen Preparation for XRF”, the first hands-on training program of its kind, back in 2006. John’s many years of experience have provided him with a wealth of theoretical and practical knowledge, which he generously shares through his interactions with students, via lectures, workshops, or one-on-one networking discussions.
John’s commitment to education is not limited to ICDD activities. He serves as a frequent instructor and speaker at the Annual Denver X-ray Conference, where he also contributes his expertise as a member of the conference’s Organizing Committee.
Larry began teaching the XRF Clinics when they were held at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany, and again later when they were moved to ICDD. In the early years at ICDD, the XRF Clinic was held in two sessions, in which Larry participated. Through his guidance and assistance, the two sessions were later blended into a single course, “Practical X-ray Fluorescence.” Larry was also instrumental in the development of ICDD’s specialized, laboratory-based, and almost entirely hands-on workshop, “Specimen Preparation for XRF.” In this course, unparallel in applied XRF, students learn how to prepare samples in several different ways, and directly see how the preparation methods affect the results.
With over 30 years of experience in the XRF field, Larry has been exposed to a broad range of analytical challenges in XRF. From his vast knowledge base and commitment to education, Larry continues to successfully train spectroscopists through ICDD’s educational venues, as well as those of Bruker AXS.
Mark possesses a unique ability to engage students by incorporating everyday items, such as candy, party whistles, cat toys, film clips, etc. into his lectures and workshops to illustrate diffraction concepts. The end result is a deeper understanding of complex concepts, along with a fun, memorable experience! As a tremendous asset to our teaching team, Mark interacts well with students and colleagues alike.
Mark often participates as an instructor and speaker at the Denver X-ray Conference. He currently serves on the Board of Directors as a Director-at-large.

For more information on Fellows and Distinguished Fellows, please contact Daniel Louër, at email@example.com.
Named in honor of Howard McMurdie, this biennial award was established to recognize distinguished work which improves the Powder Diffraction File™ in its purpose of identifying and characterizing materials.
Awardees are chosen by the McMurdie Award Selection Committee, which is comprised of past recipients of the award, and other distinguished scientists. The most recent recipient, Jeff Dann, will serve as the Chairman. To discuss this award and your nominations, feel free to contact Jeff via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
J.D. Hanawalt Award
The J.D. Hanawalt Award is named for Professor J. Donald Hanawalt, whose pioneering work in the 1930s led to the development of the PDF database structure and search/match procedures still in use today. The award is presented every three years for an important, recent contribution to the field of powder diffraction.
Awardees are chosen by the Hanawalt Award Selection Committee, which is comprised of past recipients. Work eligible for consideration must have been published within the past five years. The award recipient is expected to submit an abstract and present a paper on the work being recognized at an appropriate powder diffraction/crystallographic meeting.
Please contact Dr. Tamás Ungár, Chairman of the Selection Committee and most recent award recipient, at email@example.com for further information.
