Olney Medalists
1944-1968

In 1944, the Howes Publishing Company, publisher of the American Dyestuff Reporter endowed an award to
recognise achievements in textile wet chemistry.  The first recipient named was Dr. Louis Atwell Olney, the
founder of the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists.  The award has been presented
annually since 1944 and is regarded as the highest award bestowed by the AATCC.
