Scope and Contents

The School of Chemistry Records include Annual Reports of the director of the Department of Chemistry, correspondence, two Annual Reports of the Dean of Graduate Courses, and a few departmental planning documents and reports. The 1935-1936 Annual Report explains the reorganization of the department into Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Divisions.

Administrative History of the School of Chemistry

Originally the Department of Chemistry, two of the department's earliest professors were Gilbert Hillhouse Boggs and William Henry Emerson. In about 1935 the department was reorganized into two divisions, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.

According to the 2010 website of this school at Georgia Tech, the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers its students "a strong foundation in the traditional areas of chemistry." Faculty, staff, and students "participate in a range of dynamic and collaborative research programs, including initiatives in: Nanochemistry, Molecular Biophysics, Chemistry of Materials, and Theoretical and Computational Chemistry."
