About Dr. Walter Charles Blasdale, Ph.D.

From: https://plants.jstor.org/stable/10.5555/al.ap.person.bm000330460

American chemist and botanist at the University of California. Walter Charles Blasdale was interested in quantitative analysis, salt solutions and the genus Primula L. Originally from Jericho in New York he entered the University of California as an undergraduate in 1888 and spent the rest of his life studying and working at that institution. Awarded a BSc in chemistry (1892) a master's degree (1896) and a PhD (1900) Blasdale began to work as an assistant and then an instructor in chemistry while a graduate student. Later he rose from the position of assistant professor in 1903 to become a full professor, a role he undertook from 1919 until his retirement in 1941.

Blasdale's first scientific paper was a work on the life history of Puccinia fungus, found on the leaves of Oenothera ovata Nutt. which was prepared while he was still an undergraduate and published in 1891. A member of many horticultural societies he cultivated primroses in his garden for study and published one of his most important works The Cultivated Species of Primula (1948) from this research. Also interested in fungi he studied mycology in his spare time which resulted in his A preliminary list of the Uredinales of California (1919). As a chemist Blasdale was interested in quantitative analysis and published a text book on this subject in 1914 as well as giving courses. Taking some leave from the University in 1904-1905 he worked in Berlin with Dutch chemist J.H. Van't Hoff and became interested in equilibria in salt solutions, publishing several works on this topic as well. Blasdale was also active in the community, at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley, teaching the boy scouts and chairing the Academic Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships between 1930 and 1934. Married to Elizabeth Rogers in 1905 he had two children.
