Dr. George Stookey, professor emeritus, has been awarded the IU Bicentennial Medal. Dr. Stookey received all of his education at Indiana University, including a bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1957, MSD in preventive dentistry in 1962, and PhD in dental sciences in 1971. He began his career in an IUSD lab in the 1950s, earning one dollar an hour testing the fluoride formulation that became the active ingredient in Crest® toothpaste.
