These charts attempt to present the academic "roots" of faculty members. The institution at which each doctorate (or in some instances doctoral-level training) was obtained is given. For many faculty members, it was possible to trace the chain of academic advisors or genealogy back to three major chemists: Fourcroy, Berthollet, or Berzelius. Prior to these persons, the antecedents are "murky", in that the advisors were not chemists but were physicians or apothecaries. Preparation of the charts was coordinated by the CHM 4060 Instructor, assisted by students in the course, and assisted by cooperating faculty, and using literature sources.
