Benjamin Silliman

ID #5213, (1816-1885)

Benjamin Silliman
Professor of Chemistry at Yale

Family: Susan Huldah Forbes b. 6 Mar 1819, d. 26 Mar 1878

Biography:
  • Benjamin Silliman was born on 4 Dec 1816, in New Haven, Connecticut.2,3
  • His father was also a famous professor at Yale who developed the process of making kerosene economically.4
  • He married Susan Huldah Forbes, daughter of William Jehiel Forbes and Charlotte Antoinette Root, on Tuesday, 19 May 1840 in New Haven, Connecticut.5
  • Benjamin Silliman was a Professor of Chemistry at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.6
  • He was instrumental in developing the oil industry. Benjamin Silliman Jr.’s primary contribution to the chemical world, and certainly the world as a whole, involved the fractional distillation of petroleum, analyzed mainly for the purpose of its qualities of illumination. He was asked to do this as one of the most prominent chemists of his time, and his report on the subject afterwards had extremely far-reaching influences. The immensely important main idea of his report was that distilled petroleum burned far brighter than any fuel on the market, except those that were far more expensive and less efficient. His conclusion was that petroleum is “a raw material from which...they may manufacture a very valuable product.” Silliman also noted that this material was able to survive through large ranges of temperature, and the possibility of it being used as a lubricant.

    His father Benjamin Silliman Sr., also a famous Yale chemist, developed the method of fractional distillation that enabled the economical production of kerosene. Benjamin Silliman Sr. was clearly the largest inspiration in Benjamin Silliman Jr.’s work. Both Sillimans were eminent chemists and professors of the subject at Yale University in their day. The father was the very first professor of chemistry at Yale in 1802, and studied the subject at the Medical College of the University of Pennsylvania. He was also the professor of as natural history - which was defined as geology, mineralogy, zoology, and botany, all of which he studied at the University of Edinburgh. His work in these areas established Yale’s rock and mineral collection as the most renowned and significant in America at the time. With his help, Yale was considered to be the foremost center of science in 19th-century America, and Benjamin Silliman Sr. is considered by many to be the father of American chemistry.7

  • His wife Susan died on 26 Mar 1878 in New Haven, Connecticut, at age 59 leaving him a widower.
  • Benjamin Silliman appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut, in the household of Susan Forbes Silliman her daughter and family, father-in-law.2
