As the institutional memory and archive for the Smithsonian Institution, the Smithsonian Institution Archives holds many interesting collections relating to science and specifically, to Chemistry. In particular, we have a variety of portraits of chemists who were important to the development of the field. We hope to give the public greater access to these images by posting them on the Flickr Commons and by highlighting these images on our blog, THE BIGGER PICTURE: Visual Archives and the Smithsonian.
