Winthrop-Sears Medal

The Winthrop-Sears Medal was established in 1970 by The Chemists’ Club to recognize individuals who, by their entrepreneurial action, have contributed to the vitality of the chemical industry and the betterment of humanity.


Named in honor of two of colonial America’s earliest chemical entrepreneurs, John Winthrop Jr. and John Sears, the medal was given out from 2003 to 2010.
