Past Issues


Dear Friends of Southern Research, As I reflect on all that has been accomplished in 2017, I count myself grateful to be part of an organization that shows such a commitment to technical innovation and excellence. Please read about the leaders who guide us and the significant accomplishments our team is making, whether in human health, a cleaner environment, national defense or the exploration of space. SR had a successful year and is poised for even more discoveries and accomplishments in 2018. Thank you for being part of our story. Arthur J. Tipton, Ph.D. President and CEO



Fournier J. “Boots” Gale first encountered SR as a young lawyer, through his work with clients in the iron and steel industries, and was impressed with the organization’s expertise, innovation and commitment to the community. Seeing SR’s involvement with smaller companies and entrepreneurs gave him a good idea of its culture and priorities. “I had seen the organization from that perspective, and I was glad to be a part of that,” he said when he was asked to serve as an independent director. From everyone at SR, we want to thank you, Mr. Gale, for the time and financial support you have dedicated to SR through 18 years of service on the board of directors and considerable philanthropic development.

Of all the discovery and potential that comes out of SR, one initiative may be unexpected: a dose of vitality through economic development. SR established the $2.4 million Prosperity Fund to support entrepreneurial activity and job creation in counties affected by the downturn of the coal industry in Alabama. Though it has been operating for well under a year, The Prosperity Fund has already become active with small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs in the affected counties.
