I am updating this information in late 2020. Given the fact that I am approaching 76 years of age, I am probably not as up to date as I have been and should be. So, please feel free to bring to my attention names of researchers in the field who should be added and I will try to do so when I next make an update. I thank you in advance for your help and guidance.

Also, many of the people whose photos, names, affiliations, and web links I offer here are friends I should have highlighted in my earlier TheoryPage web site. I am sorry that I waited this long to notice the omissions.

Before introducing some of the theoretical chemists I have not yet mentioned, I want to bring your attention to a wonderful web site that tells about the women who are working in the areas of theoretical and computational chemistry. I urge you to take a look at this excpetional resource.

The field of theoretical chemistry continues to advance and many new young scholars are making important contributions. In this section, I try to highlight some of these people who have joined the ranks of independent theoretical chemists since about 2009 as well as others who have been active even earlier.
