On April 4, 1996, the organic chemistry community lost one of its staunchest champions, Professor Tetsuo Nozoe, just a month before his 94th birthday. His death marked the end of an era of organic chemistry, not only in Japan but worldwide, especially among the fellowship of ISNA chemists. His involvement with and commitment to the ISNA movement is legendary.
Professor Nozoe served as the founding chairman of ISNA at age 68, and the inaugural meeting took place in Sendai, Japan, from August 24-28, 1970. His leadership continued not simply with guidance and support but by his attendance at every ISNA through ISNA-8 in Braunschweig, Germany, in August 1995. But never think that his presence was merely symbolic! He attended lectures, participated in debate, and astounded his junior colleagues by continuing to present his most recent research results with unswerving enthusiasm and a clarity that put many of us to shame.
Because of his stature within the ISNA family of chemists, the passing of this legendary figure is commemorated at each ISNA by a Nozoe Lecture. We owe a great thanks to the extended community of Nozoe students and friends in Japan, led by Professor Shô Itô (1924-1918), who raised funds under the auspices of the Japanese Committee of Nozoe Projects not simply for appropriate tributes in Japan but also for a Nozoe Lecture at each ISNA through ISNA-13. The financial support for these lectures and the responsibility for instigating the selection of each Nozoe Lecturer were passed to an International Committee for the Nozoe Lectureship comprising some of his former students and friends.
The current Nozoe Lectureship Selection Panel comprises Lawrence T. Scott (convener, North America), François Diederich (Europe), Peter Bäuerle (Europe), Andrew B. Holmes (Oceania), Michael M. Haley (North America), and Yoshito Tobe (Asia).
Nominations for the ISNA-19 Nozoe Lecturer should be made to Lawrence T. Scott, Louise & Jim Vanderslice Professor of Chemistry Emeritus, Merkert Chemistry Center, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467-3860 USA (e-mail: lawrence.scottBC.edu) by 1 April 2020.
