-We are delighted to announce that ASTM Committee D 13 on Textiles has added The Fiber Society to their “Related Links” list [https://www.astm.org/COMMIT/RELATED/D13.htm]  ASTM Committee D13was formed in 1914 and comprises 561 members.  The group currently has jurisdiction over 364 standards, which are published in the “Annual Book of ASTM Standards,” Volumes 7.01 and 7.02.

Please join The Fiber Society in congratulating long-time Fiber Societymember Dr. Gang Sun, Professor, Textiles and Clothing, University of California, Davis, upon his receipt of the 2016 Olney Medal.  Established in 1944, the award honors AATCC founder Dr. Louis Atwell Olney.
The Olney Medal signifies outstanding achievement in textile chemistry, or in polymer or other fields of chemistry that are of major importance to textile sciences and fibrous materials. This also includes the development of chemical agents or chemical processes used in the manufacture of textiles, fibrous materials, or methods for their evaluation.”
Dr. Sun’s award was announced in the March/April 2017 issue of theAATCC Review [http://www.aatcc.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/2016_Olney_award_article.pdf] and his Olney Medal Paper, “Creating Novel Functions on Textiles by Applying Organic Chemistry,” appears in the May/June issue of that journal.
