DICK CHENEY AND TERRENCE O'DONNELL JOIN IGI'S BOARD

 BUENA, N.J., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Edward B. Hager, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of IGI, Inc. (AMEX: IG), announced today that Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense, and Terrence O'Donnell, former general counsel of the Department of Defense, have been elected to the company's board of directors, increasing its membership to nine.
 "We are delighted to welcome two men with such outstanding credentials," said Dr. Hager. "Their depth of experience will be of great value as we further define our domestic and worldwide business opportunities."
 Mr. Cheney, currently a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., served for nearly four years as Secretary of Defense, shaping the future of the U.S. military during a period of rapid change in the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and elsewhere. He directed two of the nation's largest military operations in recent years -- Operation Just Cause in Panama in December 1989 and Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield, which lasted from August 1990 through most of 1991.
 In recognition of his leadership in the Persian Gulf War, President Bush awarded Mr. Cheney the Medal of Freedom in July 1991. Prior to serving in the Bush cabinet, he was re-elected five times as Wyoming's sole congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives. Prior to that, he served in a number of positions in the Nixon Administration and as President Ford's chief of staff.
 Mr. O'Donnell, a partner in the law firm of Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C., was the Defense Department's chief legal officer from October 1989 to March 1992, serving as counsel to Secretary Cheney and his staff. He directed the Defense Legal Services Agency, oversaw the legal services in the military department and defense agencies, and was the department's representative on the U.S. Administrative Conference and the U.S. Claims Court Advisory Committee.
 In March 1992, Mr. O'Donnell was awarded the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service for his contributions to national defense and the Attorney General's Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to law enforcement. His other government service has included key positions in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.
