Lyman A. Ripperton (1921-1978) was a practitioner in education and research for the control of air pollution during his entire professional career. He left the Los Angeles County Air Pollution Control District in 1958 to assume a teaching and research assignment in the Department of Environmental Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The program in air pollution education he initiated at UNC developed into one of the foremost in the United States. His students numbered in the hundreds, and they assumed positions in every segment of the air pollution control profession. The Lyman A. Ripperton Award may be awarded to members and nonmembers of the Association.
