Over five decades, E. Tamás Schmidt has published fifteen definitive papers
in the Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum,
enriching universal algebra and, mainly, lattice theory with nice, fundamental theorems.
His deepest results represent certain algebraic lattices as congruences lattices;
the classical Grätzer--Schmidt Theorem, published here in 1963,
and the representation of ideal lattices of distributive lattices with 0,
published here in 1981, are worth separate mentioning.
The Medal was presented to E. Tamás Schmidt at 15:00, December 17, 2008
in the Bolyai Institute.
On this occasion he delivered a lecture ``Congruence lattices and Acta Sci. Math. (Szeged)".
