I suspect people on this list know the answers to these questions:


With respect to the AAAS fellow discussion, I know that ACS and its divisions also elect fellows.


When ACS or one of its divisions nominate a fellow, would the nominee’s safety record be considered? Is safety a criteria for election as an ACS fellow? If not, I hope that it will be in the future.


For comparison, When ACS or one of its divisions nominate a fellow, would a nominee found to partake in scientific misconduct be considered? For example, would falsification of published research data be a criteria for election as an ACS fellow? I would guess it is now a criteria. Isn’t safety as important as scientific misconduct?


Is Dr. Harran an ACS fellow? Is Dr. Harran a fellow on an ACS Division? If so, when was he elected?
