Dr. Augustus Way Fountain III Appointed Senior Research Scientist at Edgewood Chemical Biological Center

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, MD | Posted on March 19th, 2008

Army senior scientists divide their time between conducting research in their own disciplinary areas and serving the Department of Defense as scientific reviewers, program advisors, and mentors of young scientists and engineers. Dr. Fountain is an internationally recognized expert in chemical defense and provides advice to government agencies for developing schedules and milestones for analytical chemistry and nanoscience projects to ensure appropriate emphasis on emerging technologies.

Dr. Fountain was brought to ECBC as part of the Experimental Personnel Program for Scientific and Technical Personnel in 2006 as an eminent expert in electro-optics as it pertained to the chemical and biological standoff detection program. He retired from the Army after 22 years of active duty service that concluded at the U.S. Military Academy, where he was a Professor of Chemistry and served as the Director of the Photonics Research Center. In 2003, he served as the United States Military Academy Fellow to the U.S. Army War College. Dr. Fountain's Army service began in 1985 serving in various capacities related to chemical defense, including active participation in Operations Just Cause with the U.S. Army Rangers in Panama and Desert Shield and Desert Storm in Iraq with the 82nd Airborne Division. .

A native of Jacksonville, Fla., Dr. Fountain holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Stetson University, a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from The Florida State University, and an M.S.S. degree in National Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa. He resides in Bel Air, Md., with his wife and son. An official pinning ceremony will be conducted in the near future.
