The award was established in 1956 by the Milwaukee Section of the American Chemical Society to honor a Milwaukee Section member for outstanding contributions or service to the industry, the profession, or the Section in the Milwaukee area.
Members of the Milwaukee Section, with the exception of those serving on the Milwaukee Section Award Committee, are eligible. A person who once was a member of the Section but by change of locale is no longer a member, is eligible provided the achievements for which that person is nominated shall have been accomplished during the nominee's membership in the Milwaukee Section.
Any member of the Milwaukee Section, except those serving on the Milwaukee Section Award Committee, may submit the name of an eligible person as a nominee. The nomination must also be in writing and must be submitted to the Section's secretary on or before September 1st.
The nomination must include a biographical sketch of the nominee, specific identification of the work or service which is the basis for the nomination, and an evaluation and appraisal of the nominee's accomplishments. Suggested form can be downloaded here.

The first Milwaukee Section Award was presented to J. Vernon Steinle in November, 1958 and has since been awarded annually, with few exceptions.
