ASTM International Honors John Beswick with Charles B. Dudley Award

ASTM International’s committee on publications presented the 2022 Charles B. Dudley Award to John Beswick. Established in 1925 in commemoration of the organization’s first president, Charles B. Dudley, the award was created to stimulate research leading to standardization, extend knowledge of the specific interests of ASTM International, and to recognize meritorious contributions to ASTM publications.

Beswick was recognized for serving as editor for the following six selected technical papers (STPs) published between 2002 and 2017 on bearing steel technology: STPs 1419, 1465, 1524, 1548, 1580 and 1600.  Beswick is currently a freelance consultant steel technologist, and in his standards work, he has drawn from a robust career in metallography, physical metallurgy, and steel technologies. He is a chartered engineer and a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

A long-time ASTM International member, Beswick has worked extensively with committee A01 on steel, stainless steel, and related alloys. He has been previously awarded by the committee with the Founders Award (2022), the Award of Appreciation (2005) and the Award of Excellence (2016). ASTM’s publication committee has also honored him with two awards, in 2003 and 2019.
