Guy C. Berry, Professor of Chemistry and Polymer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, is a widely recognized leader in rheology and light scattering of polymers. This symposium honors his remarkable scientific contributions on the occasion of his 65th birthday and upcoming retirement. His work has elucidated important issues in the conformation and dynamics of macromolecules, particularly interactions in dilute and moderately concentrated solutions of flexible, semiflexible and rodlike polymers. He has been recognized with both the 1990 Bingham Medal from the Society of Rheology and the 1994 ACS Pittsburgh Award.

Berry became a Senior Fellow of the Mellon Institute in 1965, and a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University upon the merger of Mellon Institute with the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1966. He became a Professor in 1973, and has served as Head of the Department of Chemistry as well as Acting Dean of the Mellon College of Science of Carnegie Mellon. He is co-editor with Krzysztof Matyjaszewski of Progress in Polymer Science, has been a co-editor with Edward F. Casassa of the Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Physics, and serves on the editorial boards of a number of journals. He has held Visiting Professorships at the University of Kyoto, University of Tokyo, and Colorado State University. His laboratory has included thirty-five postdoctoral associates and has graduated nineteen Ph.D. students, producing about two hundred publications along the way.
