The Chemists' Club was founded in New York in 1898 and this year celebrates the centenary of the opening of our original Chemists’ Club Building in 1911, which was inspired by the Hofmann House in Berlin. We plan a major event in June in New York City celebrating our proud legacy and role in innovation by melding university with industry and which created the comforts, safety and longevity of modern life.
