Author Code: AJWD

Born: May 5, 1811 - St. Helens, Merseyside, England

Died: Jan. 4, 1882 - Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, USA

Draper was educated at Woodhouse Grove School and University College London. When his father died in 1831, his family moved to Virginia and Draper entered into a scientific career, publishing some experimental papers before entering the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. After graduation in 1836, he taught for a while at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, before moving to New York and joining the faculty of New York University. In 1838 he became professor of chemistry and botany and in 1840 was appointed professor in the school of medicine. In 1850, he was elected school president, a post he held until 1873. Draper was elected the first president of the American Chemistry Society in 1876. He continued to teach and served as professor of chemistry at NYU until his retirement in 1881. He had many interests, not least of which was photochemistry and his work in that field was seminal, improving on Daguerre's process and resulting in much clearer photographs. Draper also became the first person to photograph an astronomical object, the Moon. In addition to his many scientific endeavours, Draper was also an accomplished historian and produced a number of important works. He was a founder of the NYU Medical School. His many works include Chemistry (1846), Natural Philosophy (1847), History of the Intellectual Development of Europe (1862), Physiology (1866), Thoughts on the Future Civil Policy of America (1867), A History of the American Civil War (1867-70), History of the Conflict Between Religion and Science (1874) and Scientific Memoirs (1878).
