Symposium 50 Years of Characterizing Structural Ceramics and Glasses: Recognizing the Contributions of George Quinn
Presentation Title A Quintessential Standards Writer and the Tangible Benefits of Standards
Author(s) Michael G Jenkins, Janine E Gallego
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Michael G Jenkins
Abstract Scope George Quinn has shown extraordinary leadership and technological prowess in the development and application of standards. Since the 1980’s Mr. Quinn wrote standards based on his empirical and analytical experiences first as Military standards and then transitioning these to ASTM and ISO standards. He does not stop at writing standards, he verifies and implements standards through organization/execution of round robins, development/marketing of standard reference materials and assisting/consulting in materials development. Mr. Quinn is the quintessential standards writer: meticulous in detail, but clear in thought and presentation keeping the end user and end use in mind without compromising technical rigor and high quality. Through his example as a standards writer as well as his administrative leadership, Mr. Quinn has recruited/inspired a new generation of standards writers. This presentation focuses on a keen and visionary goal of Mr. Quinn to demonstrate the importance of standards by showcasing their tangible benefits.
