Synopsis of Scientific/Historical Traveling Trips
Background: I have always had an interest in the history of science. In particular, being a professor of chemistry, I taught the history of the atomic concept for 35 years (1970-2005). For years I dreamed of visiting the actual places where these "atomic scientists" lived and worked. In 1998, I designed a sabbatical leave from Allegheny College entitled "Scientific/Historical Travelling: A Self-Designed Tour of England, Scotland, France, Switzerland, and Germany". The culmination of that 1998 sabbatical was a 9-week trip, the first of 12 trips involving varying degrees of scientific/historical travelling.
