The Manufacturing Chemists Association, known today as the American Chemistry Council, was formed in 1872 and represents the chemical industries to state and federal governments. The obverse and reverse of Joseph Renier’s medal share the imagery of books and beakers, while the figures of a professor and his students on the reverse emphasize the role of teaching in advances in chemistry.
