The first award of the E. W. R. Steacie Prize in the Natural Sciences has been made to Jan Van Kranendonk of the University of Toronto for his work in molecular and solidstate physics. The fund from which the award is financed was founded by friends of the late Dr. Steacie to commemorate his contributions to chemistry and his service to Canadian science as president of the National Research Council of Canada for ten years prior to his death in 1962. The Steacie Prize carries an approximate value of $1000 and is awarded from time to time for an outstanding contribution to the natural sciences in Canada by a scientist under forty years of age.
