Guthrie Medal and Prize

The Guthrie Medal and Prize is a prize awarded annually by the Institute of Physics since 1914 in memory of Frederick Guthrie, founder of the Physical Society. {The Physical Society merged with the Institute of Physics in 1960}.

Until 1966 it took the form of the Guthrie Lecture after when it was replaced by the Guthrie Medal and Prize. In 2008 the award was renamed the Faraday Medal and Prize, which is awarded annually for outstanding contributions to experimental physics to a physicist of international reputation in any sector. The medal is silver gilt and accompanied by a prize of £1000 and a certificate.
