The ACA Buerger Award was established in 1983 to honor Martin J. Buerger, Professor Emeritus of M.I.T. and University Professor Emeritus of the University of Connecticut. He was a mineralogist who made major contributions to many areas of crystallography. Buerger invented the X-ray precession camera and in 1944 he published The Photography of the Crystal Lattice, a detailed description of the theory and practical use of the precession camera for examining single crystals. He published many other books, monographs, and journal articles; his 1979 book Crystal-Structure Analysis is a standard reference work.
