The history of alumni from the Department of Chemistry at Western began with its first Honor’s degrees being awarded in 1924, nearly a century ago. This was followed quickly with the awarding of the first M.Sc. in 1927 and, subsequently, the first Ph.D. degree in 1953. Since that early period, over 4000 alumni have graduated with degrees in chemistry after a period of in depth learning, the sharing of ideas, the development of professional relationships and personal friendships within the walls of the Department. Today, Chemistry alumni share their Western colours across the world. This website is for you: a place to visit and maintain contact with the Department, to read about fellow alumni and to see what events are being organized where there is an opportunity to reconnect. We welcome your suggestions and contributions.
