I am a writer working on a chapter about chemist James Marsh and the Marsh
arsenic test for a book about crime-solving technology for young adults. I
am trying to find information about Marsh's formative years. I haven't
been able to find any references to his life before he developed the Marsh
apparatus. I do not need many details, but I would like to know where he
was born, where he went to school, and so on. Do you know where I might
obtain this information?
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me.
