ducer contest among the organized
houses at the University will end
The 26 houses entered this year
sit making the final bid in the sale
of season tickets for the University
Theater. The two Honorary Pro
ducers of 1955 will be announced
as soon as results are tabulated state.
In announcing the selection, Dr.
Roger W. Stoughton, section chair
"Hamilton is being honored for
his outstanding record as an edu
cator and his research accomplish
ments. During 35 years of teaching,
30 of which were spent at the Uni
versity, Hanilton instructed hun
dreds of students, both graduate
and undergraduate in chemistry."
"More than 65 students earned j
their Ph.D. degrees under his
guidance, and the roster of his
students who now fill important!
executive and research capacities
in industry attest to his remark
able teaching talent. Indeed, a
'Hamilton Ph.D.' is a mark of
quality and distinction in the chem-
world," Stoughton said.
In research, Hamilton is regard
ed by many as the foremost author
ity in the world on organic com
l pounds of arsenic, he added. He
i contributed materially to the de
I veiopment of Mapharsen, an im-
portant antisyphilitic drug, and
Csmoquin, an outstanding antima
larial drug, he said.
Hamilton joined the University
faculty in 1923. Except for two
years at Northwestern University,
1927-29. he was at Nebraska con
tinuously until his retirement this!
At present, Hamilton is travel
ing in Europe, and it is expected
that he will return to the University
staff next ' February as professor
of chemistry and chemical engineering.
