Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Born in Bloomington, Indiana, January 10, 1897, the boy Francis came to Stanford with his parents in 1908 when his father was appointed Professor of Educational Psychology here. He attended the Palo Alto schools and then entered Stanford University as a student in 1914, specializing in chemistry and allied engineering subjects. Receiving the Bachelor's degree in 1918, he continued with graduate studies under the inspiration and guidance of the late Professor E. C. Franklin. As a result of this work he was awarded the degrees of Engineer in Chemical Engineering in 1919 and Doctor of Philosophy in 1922. Then followed three years of postdoctoral studies with the aid of a National Research Fellowship in Chemistry. This period was spent mainly at Clark and Brown Universities, where the young Doctor Bergstrom collaborated with Professor Charles A. Kraus, who in turn had been one of Professor Franklin's very first students at the University of Kansas.
