ICDD Awards - Distinguished Fellowship Award 2012


Peter Wallace

This year, the Board of Directors recognized Peter Wallace, as the 2012 Distinguished Fellow. This award is given to a member who has given long and meritorious service to the ICDD.

Peter Wallace was one of the original members of the Metals and Alloys Task Group, and primary author of the Metals and Alloys Indexes, published in 1992. He was instrumental in developing criteria for the designation of “primary” vs. “alternate” for Metals and Alloys phases in the calculated patterns from LPF and ICSD. Pete was involved in the implementation of Pearson Symbol Codes and prototype structures in the PDF and related software. Pete’s contributions as Consulting Editor of the PDF are thorough and meticulous, which greatly enhance the quality of the PDF.

Pete’s four decades of editorial contributions to the Metals and Alloys products were recognized in 2006 when he received the McMurdie Award.
