Only one member of the Writing ..., 21 Sept 2014 [cached]
Only one member of the Writing Team (Robert Lattimer) expressed concern to the Department of Education about the draft biological evolution standards. In memos to ODE officials Dr. Daniel Good (July 26, 2001) and Dr. Robert Bowers (Aug. 6, 2001), Dr. Lattimer recommended that formal presentations on the alternative theory of intelligent design be scheduled for the Writing Team and/or the Advisory Committee.
Dr. Lattimer, an industrial chemist, was not a member of the original Grade 10 subgroup that wrote the first draft of the biological evolution standards. At his request, Lattimer was transferred to the Life Sciences subgroup in October. At the Oct. 16-18 and Nov. 29 - Dec. 1 Writing Team meetings, he participated in this subgroup.
Over the next several months, numerous presentations on the evolution-design issue were made around the state by SEAO spokespersons Jody Sjogren (a zoologist and artist), Douglas Rudy (an information technology professional), and Robert Lattimer (an industrial research scientist).
In a rather blatant rejection of the public comment process, six of seven subgroup members felt no need to make any changes to accommodate the input. (Subgroup member Robert Lattimer was the exception.) Thus the biological evolution standards remained essentially unchanged from the first draft.
On May 12, 2002, the Cleveland Plain Dealer published a feature story on Dr. Robert Lattimer's role in the biological origins debate in Ohio.
SEAO's position on these changes was stated by Robert Lattimer in a letter that appeared in the Akron Beacon Journal on Sept. 1, 2002: "Proponents of teach-the-controversy had nothing to do with the modest changes to the draft standards made in June.

Dr. Robert P. Lattimer - 2008
Dr. Robert P. Lattimer, an R&D Technical Fellow at Lubrizol Advanced Materials, has been supervisor of mass spectrometry at Lubrizol (formerly a division of the BFGoodrich Co.), since 1974. Dr. Lattimer has a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Missouri and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Kansas. He was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Michigan prior to coming to BFGoodrich.
He is an internationally recognized authority on the analytical characterization and degradation of polymeric materials. His research interests include mechanisms of crosslinking and pyrolysis of polymers, and the mass spectral characterization of polymeric systems. He is a past editor of the International Journal of Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis and a past associate editor of Rubber Chemistry and Technology. He has authored about 100 journal articles in his field, and he is co-author of the book Mass Spectrometry of Polymers (2002).
During his career with BFGoodrich (1974-2001), Lattimer and coworkers developed powerful mass spectral methods for the analytical characterization of polymeric materials. His group was the first to make extensive use of modern mass spectral methods (e.g., field desorption, laser desorption, chemical ionization, pyrolysis MS, tandem MS and high resolution MS) for elastomer compound analysis, i.e., identifying various additives and polymer components in formulated materials. Lattimer's group published numerous papers on the mechanism of antiozonant protection of rubber, concentrating on the protective film and scavenger models. The group also investigated crosslinking mechanisms in rubber, including sulfur-donor and phenolic resin curing systems. Extensive work was carried out on the development of thermal decomposition mechanisms for a number of synthetic polymers, including diene rubbers and polyurethanes.
Lattimer is past chairman of the Gordon Research Conference on Analytical Pyrolysis, and he received the ACS Rubber Division's Sparks-Thomas Award in 1990. He has won two Rubber Division Best Paper Awards, as well as three Honorable Mentions.
Lattimer is a member of the American Chemical Society and its Rubber, Polymer, and Analytical Divisions. He is a past Councilor and Chairman of the Akron Section ACS. He is a member and past Vice President of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry.

Ohio's Education Debate - May 2002, 17 July 2002 [cached]
Bob Lattimer, a physical chemist from Hudson and member of the science writing team, offered the following modifications: that a distinction be made between microevolution, which shows changes over time within a species, and macroevolution; that evolution be specified as a naturalistic theory; and that intelligent design be offered as a competing view.
Lattimer is also a member of Science Excellence for All Ohioans, a non-profit organization advancing the cause of intelligent design throughout the standards process.Intelligent design is a new theory which proposes that, using the scientific method, it is possible to determine if something may have been created by a mind or intelligent designer.This is not the same as creationism, which starts from a literal interpretation of Genesis and has been ruled unconstitutional in several federal court cases.
Lattimer and Calvert responded in the Plain Dealer that "Santorum amendment," attached to President Bush's massive education reform bill, calls for schools to discuss the "full range of science views that exist" on controversial issues like biological evolution.
