Biographies: James L. Marshall gained his B.S. in chemistry at Indiana University in 1962, and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry at Ohio State University in 1966. The following year Dr. Marshall joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of North Texas. During the 1980s Dr. Marshall spent six years at Motorola, Inc. In 1987 he returned to the University of North Texas where he conducted materials research; and in the 1990s he initiated research in chemical history. His research at UNT has resulted in over 200 publications, including a reference book on NMR, and several books on the history of chemistry and laboratory chemistry. For the past ten years he and his wife (a retired member of the computer technology group of the Denton Texas Independent School District) have been developing an extensive work, "Rediscovery of the Elements," and in 2010 have completed their work and have prepared a DVD describing their travels and the results of their research. Their research was recently reviewed in NATURE (2005, 436(25), 1082-1083) and their work has recently won "Best Paper Award" in the Bulletin for the History of Chemistry (in 2004).
