Building the Literature of a Profession
Fifteen prominent chemical engineers first met in New York more than 60 years ago to plan a continuing literature for their rapidly growing profession. From industrycame such pioneer practitioners as Leo H. Baekeland, Arthur D. Little, Charles L. Reese, John V. N. Dorr, M. C. Whitaker, and R. S. McBride. From the universities came such eminent educators as William H. Walker, Alfred H. White, D. D. Jackson, J. H. James, Warren K. Lewis, and Harry A. Curtis. H. C. Parmelee, then editor of Chemical and Metallu~cal Engineering, served as chairman and was joinedsubsequently by S. D. Kirkpatrick as consulting editor. After several meetings, this committee submitted its report to the McGraw-Hill Book Company in September 1925. In the report were detailed specifications for a correlated series of more than a dozen texts and reference books which have since become the McGraw-Hill Series in Chemical Engineering and which became the cornerstone of the chemicalengineering curriculum. From this beginning there has evolved a series of texts surpassing by far the scope and longevity envisioned by the founding Editorial Board. The McGraw-Hill Series in Chemical Engineering stands as a unique historical record of the development of chemical engineering education and practice. In the series one finds the milestones of the subject’s evolution: industrialchemistry, stoichiometry, unit operations and processes, thermodynamics, kinetics, and transfer operations. Chemical engineering is a dynamic profession, and its literature continues to evolve. McGraw-Hill, with its editor, B. J. Clark and consulting editors, remains committed to a publishing policy that will serve, and indeed lead, the needs of the chemical engineering profession during the years tocome.
