Chemical Heritage Foundation Names Thomas R. Tritton President

Thomas R. Tritton, formerly president of Haverford College, will become president of the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) effective 1 January 2008. He will be only the second president of CHF, succeeding Arnold Thackray, who founded the organization in Philadelphia 25 years ago and will continue with CHF in the new role of chancellor.

“I am enormously excited to be returning to my roots as a scientist,” says Dr. Tritton. “My life has been devoted to education and the CHF position offers a new way to continue that calling in directions that are both original and challenging.”

Tritton was selected following a worldwide search for someone with both scholarly and entrepreneurial talents, who combines a passion for the long sweep of chemistry and molecular sciences with the drive to build and sustain a successful enterprise.
“Scientist, scholar, inspiring leader, Tom Tritton is the right person at the right time for CHF,” said Vincent Calarco, chairman of the CHF Board of Directors. “His passion for chemistry, his energy, his leadership will help CHF achieve its ambitious goals . . .”

“CHF’s world-class scientific collections and holdings provide an outstanding resource for scholars and a natural linkage to both the humanities and to the social sciences,” said Tritton. “Additionally, the work on science education, outreach, and public policy offers distinctive contributions to contemporary questions and societal needs.”
