|Title:||Lives of Scientists|
|Abstract:||CHARLES Fredrick Chandler earned his reputation as one of the first outstanding industrial chemists of the United States. Born in 1836, he worked under Wohler at Gottingen and Heinrich Rose at Berlin, getting his doctorate degree in 1856. Returning to the US he established the school of mines in Columbia, where he was a professor for 36 years and dean for 33 years. He earned large fees as a chemical expert, but gave away a large sum of it to the poor and needy students. Dr. Chandler’s lectures were always filled with humor, witty stories and amusing anecdotes.|
