Eminent Deceased Chemists from the Washington, D.C. Area.
Goldsmith, Robert H.
Washington, D.C. has been associated with many distinguished chemists. Since its incorporation in 1802, a steady stream of chemists have made impressive contributions to chemical science, health, information science, minerology, food science and other areas. The majority of these chemists have been associated directly or indirectly with the federal government but universities and various professional and commerical associations have also contributed to the group. The 36 chemists included in this paper were either born in Washington or performed the major part of their work there and have been recognized in some manner such as by the receipt of awards, inclusion in books recognizing eminent chemists or strong recommendations from colleagues recognizing the person's contributions. Major accomplishments and contributions, honors and awards, and professional affiliations, are presented for each chemist, as well as information unique to each individual. (Author/JN)
