Charles W. Myles: Academic "Family Tree"
Much of the 20th Century part of this is borrowed from Dave Drabold (Ohio U.), another of Pete Fedders' students! His Academic "Family Tree", including his students, is Here. The part prior to A.P. Wills (PhD, 1897) is taken from the "Chemical Genealogy Database" which is  Here. Specifically, start Here & follow the "Advisor" links. This database is a rich source of biographical information (birth & death dates. etc.) & it contains brief summaries of major scientific accomplishments. Where possible, it also lists references (books, journals, etc.) where the information can be confirmed.  This list starts from my own PhD and works backward in time.
