Michael Faraday was an English chemist and physicist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. Faraday was the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, a position to which he was appointed for life.

From the description of Letter to Charles Thornton Coathupe, 1839, April 11. (Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens). WorldCat record id: 502017610

Apprenticed to a book binder but devoted his spare time to science. He was engaged by Sir Humphry Davy as his assistant at the Royal Institution and visted the continent with Davy. In 1827 Faraday succeeded Davy at the Royal Institution and he was made D. C. L. 1832. He carried out a large number of researches of the highest class and made numerous discoveries of cardinal importance. He discovered induced electricity 1831, electrotonic state of matter 1831, equivalents in electro-chemical decompostion 1834, etc. F. R. S. 1824.

Michael Faraday was born on 22 September 1791 at Newington Butts. Having received little formal education, he was apprenticed to a bookbinder in 1804, becoming interested in science through reading scientific publications and attending lectures given by, amongst others, Sir Humphry Davy. In 1813, he was engaged as a chemical assistant at the Royal Institution in London. In 1815, Faraday resumed his post at the Royal Institution where he began to conduct numerous scientific experiments. He was promoted superintendent of the house in 1821, the year in which he discovered the principle of the electric motor, later publishing his work on electromagnetic rotations. In 1823, he liquefied chlorine, thus proving that a gas was transformable to a liquid state, and two years later isolated the compound benzene.

In 1830, Faraday was appointed professor of chemistry at the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich, a post he held until 1851. During the 1830s, Faraday conducted numerous experiments in electricity and electromagnetism, discovering the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction in 1831, and conducting research on electrolysis in 1833, thus formulating Faraday's Laws. In addition to other scientific contributions, he produced the first dynamo and discovered that a magnetic field can rotate the plane of polarized light, later known as the Faraday Effect. Between 1836 and 1865, Faraday acted as scientific adviser to Trinity House, an establishment responsible for safe navigation around the shores of England and Wales. After his health began to deteriorate in 1841, he conducted fewer experiments and devoted more of his time to lecturing. He died on 25 August 1867 at Hampton Court in London.
