Adams, Roger

Adams, Roger

(1889–1971) chemist; born in Boston, Mass. After completing his graduate studies in Germany, he joined the faculty of the University of Illinois (1916–50s). He was influential in changing the emphasis of chemistry education in the U.S.A. from pure research toward a meshing of academic and industrial needs; the University of Illinois became particularly noted for providing chemists for industry. He is also regarded as one of the founders of the modern field of organic chemistry.
