David A. Evans (1941-2022)

We are deeply saddened by the passing of David Evans, Abbott and James Lawrence Professor of Chemistry Emeritus at Harvard University. 

Dave was one of the instrumental minds behind the conception and initial development of ChemDraw back in 1985. Our thoughts and condolences go to Sally and Dave's personal and scientific families. May he rest in Peace.

He wrote about his career path as a scientist and an educator here

The history of ChemDraw was described by David Evans himself in Angewandte Chemie, 2014, 53, 1140-1145 https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.201405820 and  cited in Chemical and Engineering News https://cen.acs.org/articles/92/i33/Reflections-ChemDraw.html. Stewart Rubinstein was then a PhD student with EJ Corey working on LHASA
