Guest Speaker: Chemistry on Stamps

Prof. Daniel Rabinovich

Postage stamps constitute a simple yet effective means of communication, often used by governments or postal authorities to inform or engage the general public on a variety of topics, including history, geography, literature and the arts. A surprisingly large number of stamps have also been issued to commemorate scientific discoveries or to honor well-known scientists. This presentation will feature postage stamps and other philatelic materials pertaining to the history of chemistry, the discovery and sources of the elements, chemical structures and formulas, laboratory equipment, biochemistry, and various aspects of the chemical industry.

Sponsored by the Department of Chemistry and the Kalamazoo Section of the American Chemical Society
