This award, bestowed by the ACS Division of Polymeric Materials: Science & En- gineering, recognizes outstanding achievement in coatings science, technology, and engineering, and will be presented to Provder dur- ing the fall national meeting in Mi- ami Beach. He is being honored for his significant accomplishments in a variety of areas, including particle size distribution analysis, size ex- clusion chromatography, polymer and coatings characterization, the chemistry and physics of cure, and the application of computer tech- nology to research and development modeling. Provder is an internation- ally known lecturer, and has some 80 journal publications and three patents to his credit. He was named principal scientist at Glidden in 1983, and received the company's Scientific and Technical Achieve- ment Award in 1977.
