1) The exchange program with KAIST could not have been realized without the special contribution of the late Professor Taikyue Ree (1902-92), who was instrumental in the founding of KAIST. Professor Ree was an alumni and a former faculty member of the Department, Kyoto University. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1928, and served as Lecturer (1931-35), Associate Professor (1935-38), and Professor (1941-45). After leaving Kyoto University, he was appointed as Professor at Seoul University, Korea (1945-48) and at the University of Utah, USA (1948-70). Professor Ree was the one of the founding members, and the first president of the Korean Chemical Society.
