Gift; of Alan Templeton; 2010.
In English.
Born in 1920, David Henry Templeton received his bachelor's degree from Louisiana Polytechnic Institute in 1941, and an M.A . from the Universtiy of Texas in 1943. After being drafted into the army in 1943 Templeton was assigned to the Manhattan Project in Chicago, where he met Glenn Seaborg and other scientists from the University of California, Berkeley. They encouraged him to finish his studies and he received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 1947. He became a leading authority on X-ray diffraction and absorption correction techniques. From 1970-1975 he was Dean of the UCB College of Chemistry, and upon his retirement was Faculty Senior Scientist, Chemical Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. David Templeton married Lieselotte Kamm in 1948. Born in 1918, Lieselotte Kamm Templeton received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 1950. Together, the Templetons studied anomalous dispersion at absorption edges with synchrotron radiation. Lieselotte Templeton was interested in computer programming and the reworking of the analytical absorption program (AGNOST) now called ABSOR. She published numerous papers with David Templeton as well as other researchers. In 1987 the Templetons received the A.L. Patterson Award for using X-ray diffraction to determine chrystal structures of large, complex molecules.
