The Philip L. Levins Memorial Prize
Dr. Philip L. Levins was Vice-President in charge of Chemical and Good Sciences at Arthur D. Little, Inc. having been associated with the company for 22 years. He joined Arthur D. Little Inc. to carry on research in kinetics and mechanisms of organic reactions.
He assumed responsibility for the Company’s nuclear magnetic resonance and chromatography activities, which led to continuing involvement with analytical and environmental research for government and industrial clients. He was a pioneer in the application of high resolution mass spectroscopy to the solution of a variety of challenging problems, including finding the chemical answers to the question of diesel exhaust odor.
His research in chemical-sensory correlation studies continued through the merger of Arthur D. Little, Inc.’s chemistry and food service divisions until 1982. Among the technical staff were many young people from the Northeastern University cooperative program. Dr. Levins made certain that their time with his group was exceptionally rewarding. This exemplified his commitment to the personal and professional growth of the people who worked in the Chemical Sciences.
Mrs. Merilee Levins made an endowment to The Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society in 1986 to be used to fund an annual award, The Philip L. Levins Memorial Prize, to be awarded each year to a graduate student engaged in a research project involving some aspect of organic analytical chemistry. The Levins family hopes that this will help to keep alive the memory of Dr. Levins.
