Ames Local Section

Winfred Forrest Coover Lecture

Professor W. F. Coover joined the Iowa State University faculty in 1904 and served as professor and chair of chemistry from 1913 to 1944. He was instrumental in raising the profile of the chemistry department at ISU. A lecture in his honor was established in 1948. The lecture is sponsored by the ISU chemistry department and the Ames local section of the ACS and is normally given in the spring.
