By the time of his death in 1878, Joseph Henry was America's most eminent physical scientist. In this comprehensive biography, Albert E. Moyer reconstructs the crucial early phases of Henry's career, tracing how a boy of modest means in a nation of scant scientific resources attained international prominence. Describing the ways in which Joseph Henry influenced and was influenced by a young nation's scientific and cultural currents, this biography illuminates not only the character of nineteenth-century scientific exploration but also the place of science in American culture.
