ALLEN, Oscar Dana, chemist, born in Hebron, Maine, 25 February 1836. He was graduated at the Sheffield scientific school in 1861, and ten years later he received the degree of doctor of philosophy for original investigations, having in the mean time been an assistant professor there. In 1871 he became professor of metallurgy and assaying, and in 1873 was appointed to the chair of analytical chemistry and metallurgy. Professor Allen's researches have been chiefly on the rare elements caesium and rubidium. These investigations and his other scientific papers have appeared principally in the "American Journal of Science." The latest American edition of "Fresenius's Quantitative Analysis" (New York, 1881) was edited and revised by him. He is a member of numerous scientific societies.
