Glen Arth Seminar Series

Glen Arth graduated from Saint John's University with a bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1933. He then attended the University of Colorado where he obtained a master's degree in chemistry. He went to work for the pharmaceutical company, Merck, Sharpe & Dohme, where he worked until his death in September 1975. Glen Arth made many important contributions in the synthesis and biochemistry of steroids. Notable among his accomplishments was his participation in the synthesis of cortisone. 

In 1976, Glen Arth's friends and coworkers at Merck, Sharpe & Dohme established the Glen Arth scholarship and Glen Arth Seminar Series in his memory. The Glen Arth Seminar Series in Chemistry features expert speakers from a range of areas in the chemical sciences.
