New Member of the Faculty of Northwestern University.

David Charles Eccles
, recently appointed instructor in chemistry of the School of Pharmacy of Northwestern University is the only son of Dr. R.G. Eccles of Brroklyn, N.Y., where he was born in 1877. His study of chemistry began under the care of his father in 1891, was continued later under Professor Hale, secretary of the American Chemical Society, and finally under Professors Chandler, Bogert and others at Columbia University. After graduation from the high school in 1895 he passed the examination of the Regents of the University of the State of New York and received the advance academic diploma. In 1897 he passed Board of Pharmacy of the City of New York with a high marking, and in 1900 was graduated from Columbia University with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. His thesis won him much praise because of its completeness. It gave every step in the methods of producing antipyrine, the theoretical considerations involved and the history of the successive steps. When presenting it, later, to the american chemical society, he exhibited samples of all the intervening bodies between aniline and antipyrine, each one of which he had personally synthesized. He later produced a wholly new synthetic organic substance which on theoretical grounds promises to be a valuable addition to the materia medica. It is a condensation product of valerianic aldehyde with antipyrine. This body will be reported at the Pittsburg meeting of the American Chemical Society. In 1901 he received the degree of Master of Arts from Columbia University, and the following winter of 1901-02 served as instructor of chemistry at the Washington State College at Pullman, Washington, under Professor Fullmer, dean of the college.

Couple to Celebrate 65th Anniversary

In 1948, Dr Eccles retired and the couple moved to Madison, New Jersey where they have lived since that time. The couple has two daughters, both of whom are married and two granddaughters.
