9781440084393: Life of Benjamin Silliman, Late Professor of Chemistry, Mineralogy, and Geology in Yale College: Chiefly from His Manuscript Reminiscences, Diaries, and Correspondence, Vol. 1 of 2 (Classic Reprint)

College, spent considerable time, at the request of members of his family, in writing down reminiscences of his life. His first design was to describe the establishment and growth of the departments of instruction in Yale College, which had been so long under his care; and for this reason he commences with his appointment as Professor of Chemistry. From the beginning, however, he introduces other facts relating to his personal history, and before he has proceeded far, he announces such a modification of his plan as gives to the work, during the period which it covers, the character of an A utobiography. The narrative terminates with the resignation of his Professorship. From this date, and, indeed, for several years previous to it, his Diary is a full repository of public and private events, until within a few years of his death, when other occupations left him less time for keeping up this daily record.
