Caption

Portrait of Joseph Priestley an English chemist who was born in 1733 and died in 1804. Priestly is given credit for the isolation of oxygen although he never recognized it as such & continued to believe in the phlogiston theory of combustion as put forward by Stahl. It was Lavoisier, several years later, who named the gas oxygen.
