Biographical / Historical

Dr. Harry Boyer Weiser was fresh out of Cornell with a newly-minted doctorate in chemistry and newly married when Edgar Odell Lovett summoned him to establish the Department of Chemistry at Rice Institute. For thirty-five years, until his untimely death in 1950, Dr. Weiser served as Professor and Chairman of the Chemistry Department. In 1933 he was also named Dean of the Institute. His work in chemistry placed him among the top ten colloid chemists in the world. He wrote seven chemistry textbooks, the last of which was a second edition.
