John Richard "Dick" Aspland is the 2013 recipient of the Olney Medal for outstanding achievement in the field of textile chemistry. The Olney Medal, the highest award presented by AATCC, is for outstanding lifetime achievement in a field of major importance to textile science.

Aspland's research has included a wide range of textile chemistry interests including fluorescence of dyeings and laundered fabrics (bispectralspectrometry); fastness properties of dyeings on novel polymers; implementation of novel shade sorting software for color users from color-instrument manufacturers to apparel cutters; the influence of fiber, yarn, and fabric parameters on the physical properties of coated fabrics; synthesis of isotopic tracers for studying diffusion in nylon dyeing; the effect of color distribution on the color appearance of yarns, fibers, and fabrics (microspectrometry); and the interactions between pigment particles and polymers.

Aspland has been active in textile chemistry for more than 50 years as scientist, researcher, and educator in academia and industry. His book, Textile Dyeing and Coloration, published by AATCC in 1997, has been used as a “premier text on dyeing." Aspland and his former student, Ann Laidlaw, together published the AATCC Color Guidebook in 2011. Aspland has published more than 145 articles in peer-reviewed journals and in conference proceedings, three peer-reviewed book chapters, and holds two patents.

A member of AATCC since 1971, Aspland received the AATCC Harold C. Chapin Award for service to AATCC in 1999. In 2005, he received the AATCC William J. Weaver Paper of the Year Award for his contributions to textile science literature. He also received the Award for Faculty Excellence in 2000 and 2002 from the Clemson University Board of Trustees, the J.J. Lyons Distinguished Teacher Award in 1995-96, and the College of Commerce and Industry Teacher of the Year Award for 1993-94.

He was elected Fellow of the Textile Institute in 1988 and Fellow of the Society of Dyers and Colourists (C.Col.F.S.D.C.) in 1968. He has been a senior member, Fellow, and Examiner with the SDC since 1956, and a fellow of the Textile Institute since 1987. He is also a member of the Inter-Society Color Council and the Fiber Society.

He has traveled extensively nationally and internationally, as invited speaker or as consultant/trainer, on programs of dyes, dyeing, finishing, and color and textile chemistry. Aspland’s outreach extends from the local community to the greater textile industry.

The award will be presented at the AATCC International Conference, which is being held April 1-3, 2014, at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Asheville, NC. USA.
