Fulbright Scholars
Five Berkeley professors have received Fulbright Scholar grants for the 1998-'99 academic year. The grants enable them to teach at a foreign university for part of the academic year.

Berkeley's recipients are: Barbara Christian, who taught "American Studies" for the Kyoto American Studies Summer Seminar in Kyoto, Japan over the summer; Susan Mace, who will teach "American Literature and American Studies" in September at the Tallinn Pedagogical University and the Estonian Humanities Institute in Tallin, Estonia; William Satariano, to teach "Aging, Health and Functioning" at the University of Amsterdam in Amsterdam, Netherlands; Steven Segal, who is teaching "The Australian and U.S. Experience in Managing Mental Health Care" at the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia; and Oliver Williamson, who plans to teach "The Economics of Organization" later this spring at the University of Siena in Siena, Italy.

Roger Howe and Richard Muller
Professors of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Roger Howe and Richard Muller have been honored with the 1998 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Cledo Brunetti Award.

The two were cited for innovative contributions leading to the inception of the field of microelectromechanical systems, which applies integrated circuit technologies to the construction of mechanical as well as electronic devices.

Michael Teitz
Professor Emeritus of City and Regional Planning Michael Teitz was recently awarded two lifetime achievement honors by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP). They are the Jay Chatterjee Prize for Service to American Institute of Certified Planners and the Distinguished Planning Educator Award.

The Distinguished Planning Educator Award is the highest prize given in the planning education field and this is the first time a member of the Berkeley faculty has received the honor.

Bonnie Wade
Bonnie Wade, former chair of the deans and dean of undergraduate advising in the College of Letters and Science, has been named the Jerry and Evelyn Hemmings Chambers Chair in Music in the Department of Music.

Her latest book, "Imaging Sound: An Ethnomusicological Study of Music, Art and Culture in Mughal India," was published by the University of Chicago Press last spring.

Wade has also recently been elected president of the Society for Ethnomusicology, the major scholarly arm of her discipline.

William Miller
Professor William Miller has been selected as the first recipient of the Pitzer Professorship, a distinguished professorship in the College of Chemistry.

The award was established in honor of Kenneth Pitzer, a long-time member of the chemistry faculty who died in 1997. Established by Pitzer's family and friends, it supports research related to his fields of theoretical and physical chemistry.

J. Randolph Paulling
J. Randolph Paulling, Professor Emeritus of Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering, has been elected an honorary member by the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. Paulling is an authority on hydrodynamics, offshore structures, and the design, dynamics and structures of ships.

Anil Chopra
Anil Chopra, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, received the 1998 Ernest E. Howard Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers for his contributions in structural dynamics and earthquake engineering.

Paul Wright and Masayoshi Tomizuka
Paul Wright and Masayoshi Tomizuka, both professors of mechanical engineering, were elected by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers for induction into its 1998 College of Fellows for their contributions to manufacturing.

Wright was cited for his work in developing "intelligent" manufacturing systems. Tomizuka is a pioneer in the development of adaptive and repetitive control algorithms and their implementation in complex robot and machine tool systems.
