John Pierson: Physics & Chemistry from 1650 to 1950

The following is a timeline by John Pierson covering the historical and philosophical progression of physics and chemistry from 1650 to 1950. As a clarification,you may notice that the duration specified for each item on the graph is different. For the events, this is simply the year in which the event occurred. For the people, this duration should cover a fairly accurate ballpark of when they were most active in their primary field or field of interest to the historical progression portrayed here. You may have also noticed that the items are color coded. The colors specify the field of work these people or events were most significant to, though do keep in mind that the color does not necessarily mean that they were restricted to only that field.
