PIZZA AND MOVIE: Betty Tishler, wife of the late chemistry professor Max Tishler, speaks to Scott Horowitz '07 during the Department of Chemistry's Movie and Pizza event April 5. Betty Tishler recommended that the students watch a film titled "Percy Julian: Forgotten Genius."

Gabriel Isaacman '07 and graduate student Xin "Jeffrey" Wu enjoy their pizza prior to the film. In the background, pictured left to right are Doug Allen, assistant building manager; Post Doc Ish Kumar; and graduate students Sudipta Majumdar and Liudima Zhekieva. The gathering allowed students and faculty to mingle with each other and Tishler.
Students watch the film on Percy Julian, who was one of the great scientists of the 20th century. In a chemistry career spanning four decades, he made many valuable discoveries, for which he was awarded dozens of patents, 18 honorary degrees, and membership to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences—only the second African-American bestowed such an honor.
