reaction mechanisms, and wrote over 175 articles for journals since 1933; won the award in pure chemistry from the American
Chemical Society in 1948 and the Theodore William Richards Medal for 1962. The collection consists of Winstein's correspondence,
consultant job files, class, lecture and research notes, offprints, articles and clippings, student dissertations supervised
