ROBERT OGDEN DOREMUS (1824-1906) SIGNED CARD, “Analytical Chemistry/R. Ogden Doremus”, on a card 3.5 x 1.5, Jan. 1857, by the American chemist and physician who in 1848 established a New York City laboratory for the purpose of giving instruction in analytical chemistry, and for making commercial analyses. He was one of the founders of the New York Medical College and equipped the first laboratory in the United States for instructing medical students in analytical chemistry. In 1861 he was appointed professor of chemistry and toxicology in Bellevue Hospital Medical College and was often called upon by coroners and district attorneys to examine poison cases, and he introduced radical changes in the system of medical jurisprudence. He patented methods for extinguishing fires, and also other chemical processes, also introducing into the United States several chemical industries. He boldly signs his name and “Analytical Chemistry” and the card is in fine condition, with minor age toning and small stain on right edge.
