Joseph Leidy : the last man who knew everything by Leonard Warren( )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leidy was the first in America to use the microscope as a tool in forensic medicine. He established the concept of parasitism and became the father of American protozoology and parasitology, describing for the first time Trichina in the pig, the source of the human disease trichinosis. As the founder of American vertebrate paleontology, he was the first to describe a dinosaur and many other extinct animals in America". -- Jacket
Maclure of New Harmony : scientist, progressive educator, radical philanthropist by Leonard Warren( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A native Scotsman, Maclure (1763-1840) became a merchant, made a fortune, and retired in his early thirties. Then, fascinated by the study of geology, Maclure did fieldwork throughout Europe before travelling to the United States, where he completed the first geological survey of his adopted nation and published a detailed, color geological map--one reason he is known as the Father of American Geology. Maclure's travels sharpened his convictions about social justice and led him to a life of social radicalism. He founded progressive schools to educate the children of the working classes and, in 1820, he joined forces with Robert Owen to found New Harmony--the utopian community in Indiana. Ever restless, Maclure later moved to Mexico, where he watched his hopes for the new republic founder
Constantine Samuel Rafinesque : a voice in the American wilderness by Leonard Warren( )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Their overwhelming discomfort with Rafinesque, and their repeated rejections of his often brilliant but unpredictable work, diminished his status and hurt him both personally and professionally during his later years. Tragically, upon his death, Rafinesque's wealth of unpublished writings and his massive collection of plant specimens were destroyed or scattered without regard."--Jacket
Adele Marion Fielde : feminist, social activist, scientist by Leonard Warren( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adele Marion Fielde, born in 1839, was a teacher, an evangelist, a social activist, scientist, lexicographer, writer and lecturer. As an American missionary in China, she became a local teacher and evangelist, struggling to reconcile her Baptist upbringing with her restless intellect. As an energetic social activist, she was a major figure in the suffragist movement, the abolition of the slave trade and the founding of two hospitals. As a scientist she conducted seminal research which is still discussed and studied today. This book provides an in-depth biographical study of the life of this remarkable woman, exploring her impact on her contemporary society, and her abiding influence on the scientific and academic communities to the present day. The author examines the social and religious constraints on Fielde's life and work and discusses her efforts to transcend these through the construction of a personal system of belief which emphasized the importance of helping others. He demonstrates how, as a woman of immense energy and intellectual ability, she was able to influence the scientific and political communities despite their prevailing negative attitude towards women. Adele Marion Fielde will be of vital interest to scholars concerned with the study of gender and the history of science
