South African Chemical Institute Company Profile

10:43 EDT 17th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

The history of the South African Chemical Institute has been written on two occasions. The first account was prepared by Principal H R Raikes who was President at the time of the twenty-first anniversary in 1933 and the second was compiled for the Golden Jubilee in 1962. It appeared in the pages of ?The South African Industrial Chemist? in the January 1963 issue. The authorship is uncertain but it is suspected that Dr Ken Mathieson, the enthusiastic editor of this journal, was responsible.The two aforementioned accounts have proved of considerable value in preparing this review of the history. Another important source of information was the comprehensive series of Annual Reports that have been published each year and contain a chronological account of events. It is hoped that the reader will refer to them if necessary.
