Biographical History

Calvin H. Bartholomew is a noted professor specializing in Chemical Engineering.

Dr. Bartholomew joined BYU's Chemical Engineering Department faculty in 1973. He teaches courses in kinetics, catalysis, catalyst deactivation, air pollution control, energy, and engineering materials. Prior to joining Brigham Young University, he was employed by Corning Glass Works, Corning New York, where he served as Senior Chemical Engineer in Automotive Emissions Control and Surface Chemistry Research. Dr. Bartholomew is actively involved with many clubs and societies. He was a 1983 recipient of the Karl G. Maeser Research and Creative Arts Award at BYU and was chosen as the Outstanding Faculty member in the Engineering College in 1985. He received the ACS Utah Award in 1991 and the Sponsored Research Achievement Award from BYU in 1994. He was appointed Pope Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1997.

Dr. Calvin H. Bartholomew received his B.E.S. in Chemical Engineering at Brigham Young University in 1968. He continued his education at Stanford University where he received a M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 1970 and 1972 respectively. Dr. Bartholomew joined Brigham Young University's Chemical Engineering Department faculty in 1973. He teaches courses in kinetics, catalysis, catalyst deactivation, air pollution control, energy, and engineering materials. He is a member of the American Chemical Society (past-president of the Central Utah Section), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the California Catalysis Society (past-president), The Rocky Mountain Fuel Society (founder), Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Xi, and the Western States Catalysis Club (founder). He was a 1983 recipient of the Karl G. Maeser Research and Creative Arts Award at BYU and was chosen as the Outstanding Faculty member in the Engineering College in 1985. He received the ACS Utah Award in 1991 and the Sponsored Research Achievement Award from BYU in 1994. He was appointed Pope Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1997. Dr. Bartholomew has also conducted research over the past 26 years in catalysis and combustion. He has been the principal investigator or co-investigator on over 45 grants and contracts and has supervised more than 80 research students. He is the author or co-author of 2 books, over 100 peer-reviewed papers and reviews, 230 reports, and 185 proceedings of meetings in catalysis with emphasis on activity-structure relationships, catalyst deactivation, chemisorption, syngas conversion catalysis and selective catalytic reduction of NOx. He has also consulted with more than 30 different companies on problems related to catalysis and air pollution. In 1973 Dr. Bartholomew established the BYU Catalysis Laboratory that presently employs two faculty and 15 students in fundamental studies of heterogeneous catalysis and combustion. Together with L. Douglas Smoot and David W. Pershing he was active in the establishment and direction of the Combustion Center (ACERC) at BYU and U. of Utah.
