Thomas Carl Ward, Ph. D.
|1968-2007||Chemistry||Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA, United States|
Area:Polymer Physics and Adhesion
Prof. Ward joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry in 1968 and during the course of his career as a researcher, made many contributions to the understanding of complex multiple phase systems and their strength of attachment to one another. Throughout his career, he published 159 journal articles, wrote four books, received one patent and mentored over 60 graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. An accomplished lecturer, he became a member of the university’s Academy of Teaching Excellence in 1975, received the Virginia Tech William E. Wine Award for Teaching Excellence in 1975, and received the Paul J. Flory Polymer Education Award from the ACS Division of Polymer Chemistry in 2004. Dr. Ward co-founded the ACS Polymer Chemistry short courses in 1976 and taught short courses both through the ACS and on industrial sites worldwide until 2013. He was a true educator. Dr. Ward held the title of Adhesive and Sealant Council Professor of Chemistry and was conferred the title Adhesive and Sealant Council Professor Emeritus upon his retirement in 2007.
