Frank Lemkey, a metallurgical engineering graduate from University of Michigan would later receive his doctorate in metal physics at University of Oxford in 1974.  His principal research areas were controlled solidification and mechanical behavior of eutectic alloys and superalloys.  He is the author/editor of five books, has 25 patents and has received the Grossman best paper Award of the American Society for Materials and the Citation Classic award from “Current Contents”.    As Adjunct Professor and Visiting Professor he taught materials processing courses and served on graduate student committees respectively at Dartmouth College and the University of Connecticut.  He is a Fellow of American Society of Materials and was elected to the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering in 1983. He was appointed a White House Executive Fellow in 1988-1989 serving as Director of the Microgravity Division of NASA and later on the National Research Council, Space Studies Board as Chairman of the Committee on Microgravity Research.  Dr. Lemkey founded several joint venture companies for United Technologies with Russian and Ukrainian Institutes. The largest company was Pratt and Whitney-Paton in Kiev, Ukraine which manufactures electron beam coating equipment and coats gas turbine engine components.  After retirement, Dr. Lemkey was appointed Director of Technology Commercialization for the United States Industry Coalition in Washington D.C.  Today he continues research as a consulting scientist at the International Center for Electron Beam Technologies of the Ukraine Academy of Science.
