Chemist John Waugh recieved the A.B. summa cum Laude from Dartmouth College and the Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology. He has been a member of the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for many years and was named Albert Amos Noyes professor there in 1973. In his career as a scientific educator he has taught in the most distinguished institutions in this country and abroad, including Columbia University, Notre Dame, Tufts University, Princeton, Dartmouth, the University of California at Berkeley, the Cal!fornia Institute of Technology, Harvard Uruvers1ty, the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg, and the USSR Academy of Sciences. He has been a member of the chemistry advisory panel of the National Science Foundation, a member of the scientific and educational committee of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and a member of the National Academy of Scientists and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is the recipient of the Irving Langmuir Award and of fellowships from the Sloan and Guggenheim foundations and has been a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Physical Society. He is the author of New NMR Methods in Solid State Physics (1978), co-editor of Advances in Magnetic. Resonance, associate editor of The Journal of Chemical Physics and Spectrochimica Acta, and member of the editorial board of Chemical Reviews. In 1984 he received the coveted Wolf Prize.

His Work: Dr. Waugh's research has focused on the areas of molecular spectroscopy, magnetic resonance, and solid state physics. He is known for his fundamental contributions to the field of high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in solids.
