John Hall Gladstone
Birth: Mar. 7, 1827
Greater London, England
Death: Oct. 6, 1902
Greater London, England

Scientist. He was principally known for his work on numerical relationships in chemistry. He was born in London in 1827. His father was a draper whose business had so prospered that by 1842 he could retire. Gladstone was privately educated at home and in later life was well provided for financially. He married Jane Tilt, daughter of a wealthy publisher, which brought him further financial security. He could now embark and indulge himself in chemical curiosity, never requiring to seek paid employment. He was therefore able to devote much of his time to chemical research. Although his wealth made possible an enviable lifestyle, it ranked low on his list of priorities. He is more remembered as a chemical researcher, philanthropist and statesman for science. He served for two years as lecturer in chemistry at Saint Thomas's Hospital in 1850. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society at the unusually young age of twenty-six in 1853. Between 1858 to 1861 he served on the Royal Commission on lighthouses, and 1864 to 1868 was a member of the War Office Committee on gun-cotton. He provided much insight into the numerical relationships in chemistry. He pointed out the regularities (and irregularities) among similar elements. He helped to lay the foundation of modern physical chemistry. (bio by: s.canning)
