The Science Heritage Institute (SHI) has become more strongly connected to AIChE. There are several AIChE Fellows among the SHI leadership. SHI was formerly the Chemical Heritage Foundation founded by ACS and AIChE. The SHI facility in Philadelphia houses the natural repository for the history of chemistry, chemical engineering, and the life sciences, the Institute’s museum and Othmer Library with rapidly expanding collections, archives, and works readily available to the scientifically curious public and scientists alike. Distillations—our articles, podcast, and videos—tell compelling stories at the heart of science and society. Meanwhile, the SHI Institute for Research and Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry offer exceptional opportunities for academic scholarship. Finally the conference center is an elegant venue for creating unforgettable occasions.
