The President today announced that he will nominate George C. Pimentel to be Deputy Director of the National Science Foundation. He would replace Richard C. Atkinson, who has been appointed Director of the Foundation.

Pimentel was born May 2, 1922, in Rolinda, Calif. He received an A.B. in 1943 and a Ph.D. in 1949 from the University of California.

Pimentel has been on the faculty of the chemistry department at the University of California at Berkeley since 1949 and has been a full professor since 1959. He was a Guggenheim Fellow in 1955.

The President also announced that he will nominate F. James Rutherford, of New York City, to be an Assistant Director of the National Science Foundation for Science Education. He would replace Harvey Averch.

Rutherford was born July 11, 1924, in Stockton, Calif. He received an A.B. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1947, an M.A. from Stanford University in 1949, and an Ed. D. in science education from Harvard University in 1962.

From 1962 to 1964, Rutherford was a science consultant and director of the science-humanities program for the San Mateo Union High School District. He was an assistant, then associate professor of science education and executive director of project physics at Harvard University from 1964 to 1971.

Since 1971 Rutherford has been chairman of the science education department at New York University.
