Materials in this collection were created through the administrative, research, and teaching activities of the Brandeis Department of Chemistry between the 1960s-2010s. Included are student lab notebooks, a manuscript by Professor Sidney Goldin, and materials related to a 2015 tribute in honor of Irving R. Epstein, the Henry F. Fischbach Professor of Chemistry.
The Department of Chemistry was one of the original departments in the School of Science at Brandeis University. Today the department retains both research and teaching faculty, as well as several research laboratories in the areas of biophysical chemistry, chemical biology, materials science, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry.
