Title: Historical Distillates: Chemistry at the University of Toronto Since 1843.
Description: Toronto, Dundurn. 2007, First Edition. (ISBN: 9781550027242) Soft Cover. 256 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs. "Examines the history of the Chemistry Department at the University of Toronto from its beginnings in 1843, when it was housed in simple quarters in the parliament buildings on Front St reet and had just one faculty member. During the founding era (1843-1920) three British gentlemen professors guided the department through four homes; between 1920 and 1960 three Canadian heads built a highly influential department. Since 1960 eight chairmen have effectively managed a growing and diverse department while it ventured into exciting new fields and emerging sub-disciplines. New faculty, new programs, new locations, and a Nobel Prize have been highlights of the past few decades. With the completion of recent renovations and additions (such as the Davenport Research Building and Garden), with its distinguished faculty, top-rate staff, and excellent students, and with its dazzling array of equipment to support research, the department's future indeed looks bright." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing on front cover. Near Fine.
