Description

Dr Andrew Ure (1778-1857) published his dictionary in 1846. He was a profesor of chemistry at Anderson College, Glasgow from 1804 to 1830, and became Director of Glasgow Observatory in 1809. In the 1820s and 1830s he was a research chemist for the British government, his work including analytical chemistry for the Board of Customs. Ure was a firm believer in the benefits of mechanisation in factories and a pasionate advocate of free trade, and inaugurated popular scientific lectures. He also published the 'Dictionary of Chemistry' (1821).
