Lecture topics include the history of chemistry, chemical pharmacy, sources of heat, and combustion.
John Collins Warren (1778-1856), A.B., 1797, Harvard College, Cambridge, Massachusetts; M.D., 1801, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, was the first dean of Harvard Medical School (1816-1819). He became an adjunct professor of Anatomy and Surgery at Harvard in 1809, and he succeeded his father, John Warren (1753-1815), as Hersey Professor of Anatomy and Surgery upon the elder Warren's death. Warren amassed a collection of anatomical specimens, which he gifted to Harvard in 1847, along with an endowment of $5,000 in railroad stock, to support the establishment of the Warren Anatomical Museum. Warren also helped found the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1811.
