UCLA History: Cram

The text below is from the description of the collection of papers of Nobelist Donald Cram in Special Collections at the UCLA library: 

Donald J. Cram, a Nobel Prize-winning organic chemist, came to UCLA in August of 1947 where he taught and conducted research for over four decades. The field of host-guest complexation chemistry was in large part developed by Cram and his research group at UCLA. Through this work, the interactions between enzymes and their substrates in a living cell were mimicked using synthetic molecules. The collection includes correspondence, lectures, publications, UCLA theses and dissertations, scrapbooks, patent notebooks, honorary medals, molecular models, photographs, his signature bow-tie and Nobel Prize.
