Brooke Hindle in his 'Technology in early America' (1966) comments on his accomplishments: "At the Franklin Institute, Walter R. Johnson (1794-1852) wrote a number of pieces that are almost like recent engineers' reports. Johnson, who practiced as a civil and mining engineer, served as professor of mechanics and natural philosophy at the Institute and later as professor of chemistry and natural philosophy in the Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania; he spent his life trying to apply science to practical purposes." Johnson's experiments on the action between a heated surface and water of different temperatures were aided by the use of his steam pyrometer illlustrated in the plate. On Johnson, see: G.H.
