"In all of my interactions with him and in watching him interact with others, it was clear that Dr. May is an energetic, effective, committed, and charismatic scientific leader...Not surprisingly, given these characteristics, Dr. May did an excellent job as NIST Director. I think he would be great in the top leadership role in the ACS."
