The Board of Trustees of the Gordon Research Conferences established the Alexander M. Cruickshank Lectures to honor the many years of service to the organization by the former director, Dr. A.M. Cruickshank.
Alexander M. Cruickshank Award
Typically, there will be one such lectureship annually for each of the principal subdisciplines of the Conferences, namely the Biological, Chemical, and Physical sciences. At its discretion, the Board may occasionally elect additional Alexander M. Cruickshank lecturers.
