Abstract

“ The continuity of Dr. King’s active interest and leadership in research on vitamin C for some half century is unique. But his breadth of leadership and his influence have been far wider than the development of knowledge relating to ascorbic acid. As Scientific Director and President of The Nutrition Foundation, Dr. King helped to establish the Food and Nutrition Board, the Food Protection Committee, the Recommended Dietary Allowances, the Protein Advisory Group (PAG), the International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS), the grant programs in nutrition and biochemistry in the National institutes of Health. NUTRITION REVIEWS was his conception. His contributions have been broad and numerous, but more importantly of great integrity and quality. Dr. King has completed a history of The Nutrition Foundation, 1941-1975, which shortly will be published by the Foundation, and which sets forth the remarkable story of the many interests and institutions which he helped to establish. 0 Announcement of Appointment Professor William G. Hoekstra has been appointed General Foods Distinguished Professor of Nutrition in the Department of Nutritional Sciences of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin. The appointment of Dr. Hoekstra recognizes his important research contributions to the present understanding of the nutritional roles of certain trace elements.
