Author Bio

John L. Hogg

John L. Hogg was Professor of Chemistry and Thamann Professor of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. degree in chemistry at Southwestern State College in Oklahoma, his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas, and joined the faculty at Texas A&M University in 1975. He has about 40 publications in the general areas of physical organic and bioorganic chemistry. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the Texas A&M University Association of Former Students Faculty Distinguished Achievement Awards in Teaching, College of Science teaching award (2002) and the Mervin and Annette Peters Advising Award as the outstanding undergraduate faculty advisor at Texas A&M in 2004. Dr. Hogg was one of the first four faculty members at Texas A&M to receive the title of University Professor of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (1996), and he was honored with a named professorship in 2002. John passed away suddenly in 2008, and we dedicate this revision to his memory.
