Jeannette Brown, a North Jersey ACS chemist, has written the stories of seven women chemists for African American National Biography. In this set of books there are biographies of only 19 chemists and chemical engineers. This is probably because most historians have not researched this history. Ms Brown had the pleasure of being one of the authors of seven of the biographies of African American women chemists. She is a retired African American synthetic organic chemist who has become a historian of African American women chemists.
