Legends of Science
Harprasad Chaudhuri Harprasad Chaudhuri

Harprasad Chaudhuri obtained his PhD from the University of London in 1922. He specialized in plant pathology. He studied the various diseases of tea bushes, orchards and vegetable crops and the effect of X-rays and ultraviolet rays on the physiology of some fungi. His research areas included soil, aquatic and coprophilous fungi, slime moulds, and bacteria, including wheat and mycorrhiza bacterial diseases. Dr. Chaudhuri was a Fellow of the Indian Botanical Society and Botanical Society of Bengal. He also was the President of the Botany Section of the Indian Science Congress in 1932.

Jnanendra Chandra Ghosh Jnanendra Chandra Ghosh

Jnanendra Chandra Ghosh obtained his DSc degree from the University of Kolkata in 1918. He did pioneering research on getting liquid fuel from carbon monoxide and hydrogen and the step-wise mechanism of ammonia synthesis from its elements. He introduced several subjects for study, including power engineering and fermentation technology. Dr. Ghosh was a member of the Royal Society of Empire, London, and Indian Scientific Mission to the UK, USA and Canada. He was President of INSA (1943-1944).
