Errata
Gerard P. Moss, professor at Queen Mary, University of London, provided the following clarification regarding an article about William Perkin’s discovery of mauveine that appeared in the March-April 2007 CI, on pages 4–7 in print.

“In the preamble of John Malin’s feature describing CHEMRAWN, he quotes Bryant Rossiter, first chair of the CHEMRAWN Committee. Unfortunately, the first statement attributed to Rossiter is erroneous: The 18-year-old William Perkin did discover mauveine in 1865, but it was in his father’s house in King David Lane, in the East End of London, not Cambridge. At the time, he was studying at the Royal College of Chemistry in Oxford Street, London, under
August W. Hofmann (not Hoffman). The Royal College is the earliest constituent institution, renamed Imperial College, London, in 1907.”
