Historical Note

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Texas at Austin was established in 1893 by chemist and faculty chairman John W. Mallet. Graduate instruction in the department began in 1914 at the master’s level and in 1929 at the doctoral level. The Department of Chemical Engineering was split off and transferred to the College of Engineering.

Until 1937 only eight individuals held professorships in the Chemistry Department. Between 1896 and 1918, the department consisted of Professors Harper, Bailey, and Schoch, known as the "Three Pals." Eight additional professors joined the department between 1937 and 1940 and the department continued to grow in the postwar years.

The department’s name was later changed to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
