Whilst researching the new faculty moves for 2014, I came across a bevy of interesting stuff...
Negishi's Bronze Bust unveiled at Purdue. Unlike politicians, religious leaders, or football heroes, I'm sure the number of chemists honored this way could be counted on two hands.
Al Padwa funds a Named Lectureship...using a rollover IRA contribution.

Bob Williams funds a Named Professorship (no word on funding mechanism)
Apparently, I'm the last person on the globe to see the (now-defunct) blog Sexy Science.
(Hey, they named Phil Baran an 'up-and-coming star' waaaay before MacArthur did!)
