Robert F. Reed Technology Medal

Nominations are now open

The 2019 Reed Technology Medal nominations are currently open. All nomination materials must be received by December 16, 2019. The Reed Technology Medal recognizes聽an outstanding engineer, scientist, inventor, or researcher in the graphic communications industry. New this year, self-nominations will be accepted.聽

History of the Award

Established in 1974, the Reed Technology Medal perpetuates the memory of Robert F. Reed (1890-1971), "Dean of Lithography," whose contributions to the understanding of lithographic processes and materials were perhaps the most significant and important made by any man of his time. Reed graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1914 and worked as a research chemist with Ault and Wiberg Company and E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Co. In 1924, he joined LTF as the Foundation's first research director. He remained as senior research consultant with LTF after stepping down from the research directorship in 1945. He continued his work in graphic communications research and as an author of printing textbooks until his retirement in 1970.

Past recipients of the Reed Medal include Richard McKrell, John Crosfield, John MacPhee, Robert Bassemir, Harold Gegenheimer, and Michael Bruno.

Nominations are judged by a small committee of past Reed Medal recipients and representatives of Printing Industries of America's Ben Franklin Honor Society. The recipient will be presented with an engraved and die-struck bronze medal at the Annual Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) Annual Technical Conference on March 15-18, in Oklahoma City, OK.
