Milton “Mitch” Smith is a co-editor of the Gregory Hillhouse Issue in the ACS journal, Organometallics. Gregory Hillhouse was a scientist whose work was fundamentally important to inorganic and organic chemists. He was able to prepare and study highly reactive molecules that leaders in the field considered to be impossible to synthesize. In addition to his published work, Professor Hillhouse was a mentor to a large number of undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral research associates. He was also famous for being supportive of young scientists who never had the good fortune of passing through his laboratories, as Smith did, at the University of Chicago. After a short battle with pancreatic and liver cancer, Gregory Hillhouse passed away at home on Marc 6, 2014 at the age of 59.
