Dakin Collection

dakin-no-findingThe Dr. Henry Drysdale Dakin Collection was donated by his stepdaughters, who were the daughters of Dr. Christian A. Herter. The Collection consists of science titles, chiefly in the fields of biochemistry and chemistry, from the libraries of Dakin (biochemist, 1880-1952) and Herter (physician and biochemist, 1865-1910). In 1905 Dakin joined Herter’s research laboratory in New York City and in that same year produced the first of a series of papers on Dakin’s most important work, oxidation of organic compounds in the animal body.
