To honor his contributions in the field of chemistry, the UST Graduate School presented a festschrift to Fortunato Sevilla III last Feb. 26 at the Faculty of Civil Law Auditorium.

Madrunio stressed that a festschrift could only be given to an academic with prodigious intellect and indelible legacy.
