Bader Celebration Snieckus Quote

Alfred and Isabell Bader

Following the celebration of Alfred Bader’s 90th birthday  at Queen's, the weekly magazine of the American Chemical Society (over 18,000 members), C&EN News published (April 28th issue) a surprise laudatio article with well wishes and videos from recognized chemists and friends around the world.  Victor Snieckus was cited: 

Alfred Bader's name is synonymous with helping chemists to make molecules; furthermore, his support through awards, fellowships, and scholarships is unwavering. But more than that, Alfred, with Isabel at his side, has touched all whom he has met with enthusiasm about their work and a zest for life.

 —Victor Snieckus, Bader Chair Emeritus in Organic Chemistry, Queen's University, Ontario
