Congratulations to Judith Howard on her election to the Fellowship of Royal Society announced on 13 May 2002
The citation reads as follows:

Professor Judith Ann Kathleen Howard (n�e Duckworth) CBE, Professor of Chemistry, University of Durham. Professor Howard is elected as a General Candidate first because of her pioneering developments in X-ray and neutron crystallography, which have encompassed organic, organometallic and inorganic compounds, and secondly because of her major contribution to the wider chemical and crystallographic community in terms of education and public understanding.
