Benjamin Silliman (1779-1864), American chemist. Silliman initially studied law, but in 1802 he was appointed as Professor of Chemistry and Natural History at Yale University, USA. He was a keen populariser of science, and founded the American Journal of Science (AJS) in 1818. He became the first president of the Association of American Geologists in 1840, and was also a founding member of the National Academy of Science in 1863. Although erected after his death, the Peabody Museum at Yale, which displays mineralogy and geology, was built thanks to his work.
