Women in Science. How I Used Genealogy to Solve a 200-Year-Old Mystery: Who was Margaret Bryan?
Tuesday, May 14
Women in Science. How I Used Genealogy to Solve a 200-Year-Old Mystery: Who was Margaret Bryan?  (Monthly Meeting)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Zoom/Virtual
Margaret Bryan, an educator and author who lived some 200 years ago in England, has long been one of the mystery women of science, about whom almost nothing was known. As headmistress of a boarding school for young ladies, she wrote two well-regarded textbooks on astronomy and physics intended for female readers, A compendious system of astronomy (editions in 1797, 1799 and 1805) and Lectures on natural philosophy (1806), along with a smaller volume, Astronomical and geographical class book for schools (1815. Despite over 200 years of interest in her and her life, however, no information had been available about when and where she was born, her maiden name and the names of her parents, husband, and children, and when and where she died.
 
This May the CCGS will welcome Greg S. Girolami, William and Janet Lycan Professor of Chemistry from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Greg’s talk will be a detective story: it will describe how a small clue followed up with genealogical resources led to a trail of historical records that have – for the first time – brought Margaret Bryan out of the dark shadows in which she has been shrouded for two centuries.
