dc.descriptionDr. Pratt was Head of the Chemistry Department at Savannah State University from September 15, 1961 – 1969 known at that time as Savannah State College. Dr. Pratt was the key faculty member who established significance of the chemistry department at the university. He was the first faculty member to bring a national grant to the university, which at that time was from the National Science Foundation. Under Dr. Charles Pratt’s administration the decision to admit the first Caucasian student to the university in 1963 was supported and influenced by him. The following is supporting information of the research contributions made by Dr. Charles Pratt during his tenure as Head of the Chemistry Department at Savannah State College. Faculty Research Edition of The Savannah State College Bulletin: December 1968 – Cottonseed Protein Structure I. Isolation of Protein, and Determination of N-Terminal Acids and Sulfhydryl Groups December 1965 - Isolation of Lignoceric Acid from Acorns December 1965 – Synthetic Preparation of Apiose from Dihydroxy Acetone December 1962 - Potassium Analysis of Soils on the Campus of Savannah State College December 1962 - Isolation of Apiose from Parsley Tiger Yearbook - 1968 “The Department of Chemistry has grown by leaps and bounds in the past few years. The teaching space and equipment have been increased one hundred percent. The Department has been quite successful in obtaining funds from Chemical Societies and the National Science Foundation to sponsor several significant programs such as the In-Service Institute for teachers of Chemistry and general Science in secondary education and the Summer Science Program for selected high school students. Many research projects are carried out by the students in cooperation with the department’s active research program. The Department feels that research projects serve as food preparation for more highly developed and specialized research than the students will encounter in graduate school. The research program serves as an outlet of expression of the student’s scientific interest and capabilities other than in the classroom and gives him experience in employing the scientific method in problem solving. The Department of Chemistry provides basic training for higher education – work leading to the Master of Science and Ph.D. degree. In addition to this it provides all of the chemistry needed in pre-nursing, pre-dental and pre-medical education. The curriculum has been revised so that the student will receive a substantial number of courses in mathematics, physics, and biology which will aid him in becoming a better Chemist. The Department believes in creativity, freedom of exploration, productivity, hard work, and recreation.en_US
