Cram, Donald James, 1919-2001, American chemist, b. Chester, Vt., Ph.D. Harvard, 1947. A professor at the Univ. of California at Los Angeles, Cram expanded on the work of Charles J. Pedersen by synthesizing three-dimensional molecules that could mimic the functioning of natural molecules. With Pedersen and Jean-Marie Lehn, Cram was awarded the 1987 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the development and application of molecules with highly selective, structure specific interactions, i.e., molecules that can "recognize" each other and choose which other molecules they will form complexes with.
Cram, Ralph Adams, 1863-1942, American architect, b. Hampton Falls, N.H. An ardent exponent of Gothic architecture, Cram produced many collegiate and ecclesiastical works in a neo-Gothic style. Among these are part of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City; the graduate school and chapel at Princeton; and buildings at Williams, Phillips Exeter Academy, Rice Univ., and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. After the withdrawal of B. G. Goodhue in 1914, the architectural firm with which he was associated was known as Cram and Ferguson.
