Following up on a previous post, I thought a search of academic members of SOR could provide information on where people would go to school to obtain a rheological education. I performed erformed another search on SOR members, focusing on academics. Any one who listed an academic title (university universtiy, college, department) was counted as an academic. The top ten states for academic SOR members are TX, WI, CA, MA, OH, IL, PA, MI, NY, and MN [1,2,3]. (I went to graduate school in Illinois.) I pooled together the states where there were fewer than 5 academics per state. States with zero academic SOR members were AK, HI, NE, NH, NM, and VT.
