About the Chemistry Department

he Department of Chemistry originated in 1868, when the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts opened its doors in Hanover, NH. Ezekiel Dimond was the college's first faculty member, as well as the department's only full time professor in the early years. In 1893, Fred Morse was the head of the department when the college moved its campus to Durham. In 1909, the Chemistry Department was turned over to Charles Parsons, and from that point on, the department has been headed by such well known professors as Charles James and Harold Iddles.
