AML Awards

The AML Awards are given annually by the Association for Mormon Letters to the best work "by, about Mormons." They are juried awards, chosen by a panel of judges. Citations for many of the awards can be found on the AML websiteThe award categories vary from year to year depending on what the AML decides is worthy of honor. Beginning with the 2014 awards, the AML began creating a shortlist of finalists for most categories, which preceded the final awards.

Esther M. Conwell

Esther Marley Conwell was a pioneering American chemist and physicist. She studied properties of semiconductors and organic conductors electron transport. Conwell is best known for the Conwell-Weisskopf theory which elucidates how electrons travel through semiconductors, an accomplishment that helped revolutionize modern computing. In 1990, Conwell became an adjunct professor at the University of Rochester while still working at Xerox. In 1998, Conwell joined the University of Rochester faculty full-time as a professor of chemistry where she focused on the flow of electrons through DNA. Conwell has earned four patents, published more than 270 papers, multiple textbooks over her career, her textbook High Field Transport in Semiconductors became the authoritative text in the field. Conwell obtained a physics B. A. from Brooklyn College in 1942. She went to the University of Rochester to complete a M. S. in physics in 1945 with Victor Weisskopf. She planned to do a Ph. D. at Rochester, but since her adviser left to work at Los Alamos after her first year there, she completed her masters and obtained a Ph.

D. at a point in time. Conwell collaborated with Karl Lark-Horovitz and Vivian Johnson at Purdue University on silicon and germanium semiconductor physics, her masters was classified finally declassified in 1945 and subsequently her M. S. was awarded in. Conwell received her physics Ph. D. in 1948, from the University of Chicago under the advisement of Nobel Laureate Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar at Yerkes Observatory and was an assistant to Enrico Fermi. She was a teaching assistant at Chicago and graded the work of Nobel Laureates such as Chen-Ning Yang and Owen Chamberlain. After her first year of graduate school, she was employed by Western Electric as an assistant engineer. At the time, payroll did not have a job title code for female assistant engineers so her title was changed to engineers assistant and her pay reduced to fit an existing code, she was an instructor in physics at Brooklyn College. She worked as a researcher at Bell Laboratories where she studied with William Shockley on the effects of high electric fields on electron transport in semiconductors.

She became a staff member at Sylvania, taken over by GTE Laboratories. In 1972 she joined the Xerox Wilson Research Center, where she was a Research Fellow from 1981 to 1998. At Xerox, she investigated transport and optical properties of doped polymers such as those used for photoreceptors in copiers. Conwell was the Associate Director of the NSF Center for Photoinduced Charge Transfer at University of Rochester starting in 1991, she spent a year as a visiting professor at École Normale Supérieure in 1962 and a semester as the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor at MIT in 1972. Conwell was made a fellow of the IEEE in 1980 “for contributions to semiconductor theory transport in both low and high electric fields.” She was a fellow of the American Physical Society. She is one of the few who have the triple membership in the National Academy of Engineering, National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and is the only member of the University of Rochester to achieve this, she had received the Achievement Award of the Society of Women Engineers and an Honorary D.

Sc. from Brooklyn College in 1992. In 1997 she received the IEEE Edison Medal for "fundamental contributions to transport theory in semiconductor and organic conductors, their application to the semiconductor, electronic copying and printing industries." She was the first woman to win this award. Other notable awardees include Alexander Graham Bell, Vannevar Bush, Michael Pupin. In November 2002, Discover magazine listed Conwell as one of the 50 most important women scientists at the time. In 2004 she received a Dreyfus Senior Faculty Mentor Award for serving as a research mentor to undergraduates. In 2006, University of Rochester honored Conwell with a Susan B. Anthony Lifetime Achievement Award for her efforts in promoting women in science; the ACS Award for Encouraging Women into Careers in the Chemical Sciences was awarded to her in 2008. In 2010, Conwell received the prestigious National Medal of Science from President Barack Obama, for "her broad contributions to understanding electron and hole transport in semiconducting materials, which helped to enable commercial applications of semiconductor and organic electronic devices, for extending her analysis to studying the electronic properties of DNA."

She was nominated by Mildred Dresselhaus, a professor of physics and electrical engineering at MIT and a National Medals of Science winner. Ester Conwell was born in 1922 in New York City, she had two sisters and both of her parents were immigrants. Her son, Lewis Rothberg, is a tenured professor of Physics, Physical Chemistry, Chemical Engineering at the University of Rochester. On November 16, 2014, Conwell was walking when she was struck by her neighbor's car as he was backing out of his driveway. Capt. David Catholdi of the Brighton Police Department stated that alcohol and speed were not factors in the incident, she was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital. She was 92 years old and was still pursuing research. Oral History interview transcript with Esther M.
