The Frank H. Spedding Award Address Studies of Rare Earth Intermetallic Compounds and Rare Earth Hydrides

  • W. E. Wallace


It gives me extraordinary pleasure to accept the Frank H. Spedding Award. This recognition of our work on rare earth systems is very pleasing to me. I am doubly pleased to receive an award having associated with it the name of Frank Spedding. We all know that were it not for his extraordinary accomplishments a few decades back we would not be assembled here today for a Rare Earth Research Conference.
