COVER MEMORANDUM TO AUGUST 1973 AIR FORCE REVIEW OF DR. BALL'S HIRING
24 August 1973
Memo for the Record
Subject: Qualification Comparison for Chemist, GS-1320-15 AFOSR
Applicants: Dr. Donald Lee Ball
Dr. Emile Rutner
Both applicants meet basic eligibility requirements outlined in the X-118 (Civil Service Qualification Standards for General Schedule Positions.)
In addition to basic requirements, qualifications of each applicant must be matched very carefully to the requirements of the position to be filled.
The position description for the subject position requires an authority on chemical metallurgy, condensed phase equilibria, and ultra-high pressures. The primary purpose of the position is to provide a chemist with demonstrated scientific and administrative competence to execute a major phase of this research program. A review of the applications for the referenced applicants reveals:
Dr. Ball has shown recent directly related experience particularly in chemical metallurgy while Dr. Rutner's experience indicates less recency in chemical metallurgy. Further, Dr. Ball's technical and administrative competence has been highly substantiated through technical references. Dr. Rutner's references rate his technical ability considerably lower than Dr. Ball's plus the only reference to his administrative ability is extremely critical (Dr.* letter dated 5 June 1967).
