The DLS has made many distinguished contributions to the list of APS Fellows. The number of DLS nominations chosen to be forwarded to the APS for confirmation as Fellow in a given year is typically in the range 5-10. This depends on the good judgment of the nominators and the Divisional Committee on Fellows headed by the DLS Vice-Chair, but the Committee can do nothing without nominations. This is where DLS members must come into the picture. The Executive Committee is urging all DLS members to consider whether they know of a colleague who is deserving of the prized honor of APS Fellowship. If you are uncertain about a colleague's status, consult the APS Membership Directory, where an asterisk identifies Fellows. Nominations for deserving women, minority, and foreign DLS members are especially sought. Any member can nominate any other member, and the supporting documentation is not difficult to assemble.
