Sense of Smell Institute Honors Henry Walter.

* in a tribute to the late Henry G. Walter, Jr., the Sense of Smell Institute (SOSI) has announced that it will name its annual Sense of Smell Award after the former chairman and chief executive officer of International Flavors & Fragrances.

SOSI chairman of the board Annette Green noted, "Hank Walter was truly a visionary who brought the realm of sensory and psychological research to our industry when he founded IFF's aromascience program. He was also a key figure in the creation of the Sense of Smell Institute in the early 80s."

The Henry G. Walter, Jr. Sense of Smell Award will be presented each year to a scientist in recognition of his/her achievements in the field of olfactory research. This year, it will be presented at SOSI's annual Night of Honors fundraising gala Nov. 27. Members of SOSI's industry and scientific advisory committees as well as former Sense of Smell Award honorees will nominate candidates for the honor. The finalist will be selected by a majority vote of the advisory committee members and for the first time, the recipient of the award will receive a $5,000 cash prize in addition to the traditional crystal trophy.
