Biographical History

Thomas Graham, pioneer in physical chemistry, was born in Glasgow, the son of James Graham, a merchant and textile manufacturer. He was educated at Glasgow Grammar School and Glasgow University, where he graduated MA in 1824. Graham later studied medicine at Edinburgh University and worked in the chemical laboratory there. He was appointed Professor of Chemistry at Anderson's University in 1830. In order to be able to lecture on chemistry to the students at Anderson's Medical School, Graham submitted a successful probationary essay on gaseous diffusion to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, to obtain the necessary medical recognition. He delivered lectures also in the Glasgow Mechanics' Institution. In June 1837 Graham was appointed Professor of Chemistry at University College, London. He was active in the learned societies of the day - the Royal Society of Edinburgh, British Association, Chemical Society of London, Royal Society and Cavendish Society. He served as a chemical adviser to government and was appointed Master of the Mint in 1855.
