Lee will receive Russel Award at March 15 lecture

Stephen Lee, associate professor of chemistry, will receive the Henry Russel Award, an annual award given to young faculty members for scholarly achievement and promise.

The award will be presented March 15 in Rackham Amphitheater, followed by the annual Henry Russel Lecture given by a senior member of the faculty. This year’s lecturer is Elizabeth Douvan, the Catharine Neafie Kellogg Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies.

Lee joined the U-M in 1988 following two years of study as a von Humboldt Fellow at the University of Munster in Germany and as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Nantes in France.

Last year he was one of 31 persons nationwide to receive a MacArthur Fellowship from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

In 1991 he received LS&A’s Excellence in Education Award. In 1993 he was one of 90 young scientists and economists selected by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to receive a Sloan Research Fellowship.

Both the Henry Russel Award and the Henry Russel Lectureship were established in 1925 with a bequest from Henry Russel of Detroit, who received three degrees from the U-M.
