In December 1967, the St. Louis Section of The American Ceramic Society announced the establishment of “The St. Louis Refractories Award.” This has been provided in Article XII of the by-laws of the St. Louis Section “for the purpose of recognizing and honoring distinguished achievement in the refractories field.”
In March 1982, the St. Louis Section voted to amend Article XII of the by-laws. The award was renamed “The Theodore J. Planje — St. Louis Refractories Award” in honor of his many contributions.
Nominations received after December 1, 2016 will be held for the following year. To request a nomination form, please contact Patty Smith at P: (573) 341-6265, F: (573) 341-6151.
