Famous Scientists - Scientist Biographies and Portraits

By September 20, 2009

Follow me on:

I wanted to draw your attention to a little project that has become a rather large project. Back in January of 2009, Todd started adding a daily blog post entitled "This Day in Science History." Each blog post is accompanied by an index of events that occurred on that date. He spends a lot of time sorting fact from fiction and researching discrepancies in dates. In doing so, he learns a lot about the scientists. He has been gathering photos and portraits of the scientists and has been writing up brief biographies. To date, there are over 200 scientist biographies in the index.

Since this is the chemistry site, his principal goal is to publicize information about famous chemists and other scientists who have made contributions to chemistry and chemical engineering. If you are or know someone who has made a contribution to chemistry and you're not on the list yet, just shoot me an e-mail with the details and we will get you added. Please be sure to provide sufficient reference material so we can verify the facts. Don't be shy! You'll notice most of the entries are for dead scientists. Wouldn't it be nice to give school kids (and other people, of course) the opportunity to learn about living scientists?
