Student members of Alpha Chi Sigma, a national professional
chemistry society, are co-sponsoring a public lecture later this
Members of the Gamma Eta chapter are partnering with the Central Ohio Valley section of the American Chemical Society to bring a husband and wife lecture team to the Huntington campus at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Sept. 19 in the Memorial Student Center’s room BE5.
Dr. James L. Marshall and Virginia “Jenny” R. Marshall will present “Rediscovery of the Elements,” a lecture based on their travels to old laboratories, mines, ancient buildings and houses where they found original elemental discovery sites. Most of the sites are located in Europe. The two researchers have been active in their “Rediscovery of the Elements” project since they married in 1998. Their research culminated in 2010 with publication of their 10 years of discovery.
Dr. James Marshall received his Ph.D. in 1967 in organic chemistry from Ohio State University and has served as a professor at the University of North Texas in Denton for more than 30 years. Jenny Marshall received her M.Ed. with a specialty in computer science in 1985 from Texas Woman’s University. She taught public school for 23 years in Texas.
Light refreshments will be served prior to the lecture, which is open to the public.
For more information contact Dr. Laura McCunn, assistant professor of chemistry, at ext. 6-2319.
