Teaching Chemistry Embedded in History: Reflections on C. K. Ingold's Influence as Historian and Educator

The Bulletin for the History of Chemistry is the official publication of the American Chemical Society's Division for the History of Chemistry. The most recent issue is dedicated to the contributions of C. K. Ingold, one of the founders of physical organic chemistry. It records the proceedings of a symposium at the ACS meeting in Chicago in 1993. I encourage teachers who want to enrich their own courses with historical materials to consider joining the Division. The cost is only fifteen dollars for ACS members in North America, and twenty dollars for North American non-members. The Bulletin comes with membership. There is also a Listserv on the History of Chemistry, that you can join by sending the message: "SUBSCRIBE CHEM-HIST" to maiser@listserv.ngate.uni-regensburg.de.
