institution where the highest degree was earned, the year of graduation, and the name of the
mentor who directed the research and was the major advisor. That much takes care of the
“present generation” of faculty members. In order to follow the professional roots to their
ultimate origin, we need to know the same information—highest degree, institution, year,
mentor—for each past generation as well. Once all that information has been gathered, we
can put together a “tree” that traces the faculty member back through his/her professional
forefathers. Note that, unlike a family tree, this one entails only one ‘parent” in each gen-
eration. Ideally, the source for a genealogy should be primary information: dissertation ab-
stracts, original publications, correspondence from the individuals themselves. In the case
of living chemists, direct communication is the most reliable source. All of these have been
used in the compilation of this UM genealogy.

        Several chemistry genealogies have been constructed for US institutions over a pe-
riod of about 30 years (examples are Wisconsin, Michigan State, Purdue, and Wayne State).
Perhaps the most famous one in Germany places Justus von Liebig as the “father” of a vast
number of descendants, whose roots can be traced back to this renowned 19th-century chem-
ist. In most of the early US chemistry genealogies, their compilers came to the conclusion
that all chemists are descended from a very few “original” mentors; and so, these genealo-
