# Harry Lustig Award

We are pleased that this Award has been fully endowed by gifts from family members and friends, as well as APS members.

Harry Lustig is widely remembered for his academic achievements as physics professor, Provost, and Vice President for Academic Affairs, City College of New York. At APS, he is also remembered for his contributions as secretary‐treasurer from 1985 to 1996 (simultaneously Acting Executive Secretary 1993‐1994) and instrumental role in the formation of the Four Corners Section (4CS). Known for its strong commitment to support the work of physics students, the Section has established the Harry Lustig Award to honor Harry and recognize outstanding graduate student research performed at a Four Corners institution.

## Goal Exceeded!

Established in 2015, the annual award consists of:

• A $1,000 stipend • A certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient • Travel to the annual 4CS meeting Finalists will be invited to present their work and the recipient will be decided after the finalists’ presentations. First Harry Lustig Award Winner Announced ## About Harry Lustig Harry Lustig spent his first career at CCNY, then “retired” to become APS Secretary‐Treasurer. Harry was important to the early days of the Forum on the History of Physics, and helped establish the endowments for the LeRoy Apker Award, Joseph A. Burton Forum Award, and the Abraham Pais Prize for History of Physics. After APS, Harry "retired" again, this time to Santa Fe. His love for the area contributed to his instrumental role in the formation of the Four Corners Section, and he was very active in the affairs of the Section in its early days. Born September 23, 1925, in Vienna, Austria, Harry Lustig passed away March 17, 2011, in Santa Fe. ## Thank You to Our Donors The American Physical Society would like to thank these generous donors for their contributions to the Harry Lustig Award:$20,000 - $49,999 Anonymous(1)$5,000 - $9,999 Brian Schwartz, David Munich, Rosalind Lustig$3,000 - $4,999 David Kieda$1,000 - $2,999 Andrea Palounek, Ernest Henley, Hans Frauenfelder, Jean-Francois Van Huele, Kenneth Ford, Lawrence Lustig, Marc Brodsky, Richard Meserve, William Evenson$500 - $999 Frederick Smith, James Stith, Joseph Serene, Myriam Sarachik, Ngee-Pong Chang Up to$499
