PERKINS, Maurice, chemist, born in New London, Connecticut, 14 March, 1836. He studied chemistry abroad, spending the year 1860-'1 at the universities of Gottingen, Heidelberg, and Tubingen. In 1862 he was appointed assistant professor of chemistry at the College of physicians and surgeons in New York city, and in 1863-'5 he was assistant at the Lawrence scientific school of Harvard. He was called to the charge of chemistry in Union college in 1865, and still holds that place. In 1886 he was appointed a member of the state board of health. He received the degree of A.M. from Harvard in 1865, and that of M. D. from the Albany medical college in 1870. Professor Perkins has been largely occupied with professional investigations for private concerns, and has, therefore, published but little. He is the author of "Manual of Qualitative Analysis " (New York, 1867).
