CLUE for Monday Feb 12 – BHM Scavenger Hunt

This African American research chemist and pioneer in chemical synthesis of medicinal drugs from plants was the first to synthesize the natural product physostigmine.  He was also a pioneer in the industrial large-scale chemical synthesis of the human hormones progesterone and testosterone from the plant sterols such as stigmasterol and sitosterol.

If he was a professor at Truman, he probably would have taught in the Chemistry department.
