Centennial Exhibit

Shown above are 2019 centennial year pins, designed by John Metcalf, commemorating our 100-year anniversary and exhibit and the 50th Central Regional ACS Meeting held in Midland.

New access to the exhibit A Century of Science and Service: 100 Years of the Midland Section of the American Chemical Society is COMING SOON to the Central Michigan University Museum! Watch the blog below for updates!

While you wait, feel free to explore the ‘Exhibit and More’ tab to experience the contents of the exhibit virtually. Midland ACS is providing these materials for those who did not get a chance to visit the previous installation of the exhibit, as well as for those who wish to revisit a particular part or might be interested in hosting it. Many thanks to our visitors, to those who participated in associated programming, and to our benefactors!
