Geoffrey F. Chew, professor of physics at the University of California at Berkeley, has been awarded the 1962 American Physical Society Prize sponsored by the Hughes Aircraft Company. The presentation was made on December 28 by the Society's president, W. V. Houston, during the APS winter meeting at Stanford University. Awarded for significant contributions to physics published prior to the recipient's 33rd birthday, the $2500 prize has been presented on only two other occasions—to Donald A. Glaser in 1959 and to George Feher in 1960.
