Congratulations are in order to Dr. Hamish Fraser, Ohio Regents Eminent Scholar, Professor and Director of the Center for the Accelerated Maturation of Materials (CAMM), for receiving the ASM International's oldest award, the Henry Marion Howe Medal for 2019. Dr. Fraser was selected by the ASM International Board of Trustees as having a paper of the highest merit published in the Metallurgical and Materials Transactions. Dr. Henry Marion Howe's legacy is built upon an exemplary career as a teacher, writer, metallurgist, and consultant. The paper for which Hamish is being awarded is entitled "Understanding the Interdependence Between Composition, Microstructure, and Continuum Variables and Their Influence on the Fracture Toughness of alpha/beta Processed Ti-6AI-4V". 

Dr. Fraser will be formally awarded the medal and a certificate at a black-tie ceremony hosted by ASM International in Portland, OR later this semester. 

The ASM Henry Marion Howe Medal has been granted to authors of excellent compositions for 97 consecutive years.
