Wayne C. Wolsey, an inorganic chemist, received his B.S. from Michigan State University in 1958 and his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1962. He joined the Macalester College faculty in 1965, and is now in "semi-retirement." His last three sabbaticals were spent at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In 2001-2002, he investigated various complexing agents for their effectiveness in dissolving calcium oxalate kidney stones, in collaboration with a former student, now a urologist. He has received various awards, including the Minnesota College Science Teacher of the Year in 1989; Macalester's Thomas Jefferson Award in 1993; designation as a MegaMole contributor to Minnesota Chemical Education in 1997; and an award from the Minnesota State AAUP Conference in 2001 for his support of academic freedom and shared governance. He remains professionally active in a number of scientific organizations.

William L. Masterton received his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1953. Two years later he began to work at the University of Connecticut, where he taught general chemistry and a graduate course in chemical thermodynamics. He has received numerous teaching awards, including an award from the Student Senate at the University of Connecticut, of which he was most proud. Dr. Masterton is co-author of the all-time best-selling general chemistry textbook CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES, which has sold well over 1.5 million copies. Dr. Masterton's field of research, solution thermodynamics, prepared him well for making maple syrup each March at the family farmhouse in New Hampshire.
