Science History Institute
The Bolton Society
“To study a subject . . . the first requirement is a knowledge of the literature of that subject.”—H. C. Bolton
Named for Henry Carrington Bolton, the Bolton Society encourages and promotes the individual love for and collection of all types of printed material devoted to chemistry and related sciences. It also supports and encourages the Donald F. and Mildred Topp Othmer Library of Chemical History as a primary repository for such material.
Bolton Society members are drawn primarily from among bibliophiles, academic and industrial chemists and chemical engineers, philatelists, librarians, historians, and booksellers.
